Our School - ENGLISH

 English is central to the learning and development of all Australians.

 At St Paul’s it is a Key Learning Area through which teachers and learners deepen their understandings of how meaning is made  through active engagement with other people, language and texts in contexts. 

 It is vital  that students and teachers be competent users of Standard Australian English. To achieve this,  they need a language for learning about language; a language for interpreting, construction and responding to texts; and awareness that many languages and varieties of the English language  are used in Australia and that each has its purposes and appropriate contexts.
