Welcome to English

The English Domain’s courses are shaped by our teachers’ love of English and Western Australian Curriculum requirements- our teaching and learning always aims to spark our students’ curiosity for the subject. Students learn about the English language and how to use it effectively through their study of a wide range of written, spoken, multi-modal and visual texts. Our courses are designed to foster a lifelong interest in language and a love of reading and creating texts. Students learn to create texts of their own and to engage with those produced by other people. We regularly invite students to enter competitions and listen to visiting writers, poets and performing artists in order to extend their class studies of English.
