Teacher in Charge: Ms B. Mahy
In appreciating language and literature in all its forms, the subject of English helps us to consider our place in the world. The Year 10 programme is designed to engage students in a year of exploring ideas and thinking through the study of rich literature texts. A particular aim is to build literacy competency by focusing on reading, exploring language, and developing effective writing skills. Students are assessed on their ability to understand ideas in texts, and to express ideas with accuracy in writing, speaking and visual presentations.
