English study is mandatory in NSW from Kindergarten to Year 12.
Students learn about the English language through written, spoken and visual texts of increasing complexity as they progress through their schooling.
An understanding of the English language is central to how we communicate and essential for intellectual, social and emotional development.
The study of English should develop a love of literature and learning and be challenging and enjoyable. It develops skills to enable students to experiment with ideas and expression, to become active, independent and lifelong learners, to work with each other and to reflect on their learning.
The Literacy Collective (TLC)
In Term One 2022 we organised for one of the authors of The Literacy Collective (TLC) to do a zoom presentation for our community members. Thank you to those that were able to make it to watch it onsite. For those that couldn't make it, please find a link to the recorded session below. Karyn Fua outlines the fundamentals of the TLC program and the teaching practices that will bring success to our students.
