English is a compulsory full year subject in Year 9.
A wide and increasingly more challenging range of texts and activities will be encountered including Australian and indigenous literature and literature from other countries and times.
Students engage increasingly with more formal modes of written communication, and across the year build towards developing substantial skills of responding to and composing a wide range of texts for a specific purposes and audiences.
It is a significant and challenging year that builds and develops students for Year 10 and beyond. The study of English provides skills and knowledge for students to become effective and informed communicators in education, the workplace and in their own personal interactions.
There may be excursions and projects with associated costs (approximately $10.00).
