Through the study of English at Bomaderry High School, students develop an appreciation of literature, the skills to experiment with ideas and expression and the ability to work with each other and to reflect on their learning.
Students engage with and explore texts from diverse historical, social and cultural contexts and, through responding to and composing texts, they develop an understanding of themselves and their world. Students learn about the power, value and art of the English language for communication, knowledge and enjoyment. They develop their critical and imaginative skills and broaden their capacity for cultural understanding. Students develop skills in speaking, listening, reading, writing, viewing and representing and knowledge and understanding of language forms and features of texts. These skills and understandings allow them to develop their control of language in ways that will help in lifelong learning, in their careers and in their life.
