Students' ability to use language is at the centre of the development and expression of their emotions, thinking, learning and their sense of personal identity. Learning in this curricular area promotes the development of critical and creative thinking, personal, interpersonal and team-working skills as well as competence in listening and talking, reading and writing.
The literacy development of students is the responsibility of all staff and is fundamental to all areas of learning, as it unlocks all curricular areas. Learning other languages enables students to make connections with different people and their cultures and to play a fuller part as global citizens.
