English and Literacy
In English, students develop their skills as listeners, speakers, readers, viewers, writers and creators. They learn about the power of language, how it is used in different ways for different purposes and how to communicate effectively and imaginatively in a wide range of situations. In particular they learn to apply their skills in different ways to understand and produce multimedia texts emerging through the growth of information communication technologies. Students will learn to understand and use the English language appropriately in its many forms - spoken, written and multimedia - and as a result will be able to participate in a range of activities in the home, in the community and in the work place.
