The study of English is central to the learning and development of all young Australians. It helps create confident communicators, imaginative thinkers and informed citizens. It is through the study of English that individuals learn to analyse, understand, communicate with and build relationships with others and with the world around them. The study of English helps young people develop the knowledge and skills needed for education, training and the workplace. It helps them become ethical, thoughtful, informed and active members of society. (From Australian Curriculum)
Students will become confident, effective and critical users of texts and language by learning to make meanings in texts in contexts, operate language systems in texts, and evaluate and reconstruct meanings in texts in subject English. Such learning can generate an appreciation and enjoyment of texts and language, an interest in learning about alternative ways of being in the world, and an ability to make judgments about and accept or challenge meanings in texts. In this way, students are prepared for lifelong learning in the worlds of further education, leisure, work and daily life.
At Moreton Bay College students in Years 8 to 10 are involved in a range of learning experiences based around a variety of central themes and texts that will covered all aspects of the Australian curriculum. In Years 11 and 12 we offer Authority English and also English Communications.
