EAL/D Teachers: Ms Amanda Alderman
Ms Megan Ingram
Teaching and Learning have successfully completed the changeover from English as a Second Language (ESL) to English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D).
Throughout this process our ESL teacher, Ms Alderman and Ms Ingram has been busy preparing work samples and collecting evidence of student learning. This includes implementing the new EAL/D structures and learning sequences across all key learning areas. EAL/D now has 263 recognised students from 37 different countries enriching our school.
In 2022, we have again organised small group withdrawals to provide varied assistance for students of all abilities and the main focus this year is to move the students to being independent learners and to take responsibility for their own learning. We also have created EAL/D classes in Year 7 to Year 10 to help more students in the early secondary years.
