English

English

In English, students learn about the study and use of the English language in its various textual forms. These encompass spoken, written and visual texts through which meaning is shaped, conveyed, interpreted and reflected. Complexity increases as students progress through their schooling.

Developing proficiency in English enables students to take their place as confident communicators; critical and imaginative thinkers; lifelong learners; and informed, active participants in Australian society. Their understanding of English through knowledge and skills acquisition is essential to their 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.

Faculty information

The aim of the English faculty at Chifley College Mount Druitt Campus is to challenge and encourage all students to maximise their individual talents and capabilities for lifelong learning. We aim to develop the skills which enable students to experiment with new ideas and expressions. Through composing and responding to texts students learn to value the art of the English language for communication, knowledge and power.
