English study is mandatory in NSW from Kindergarten to Year 12.
Students learn about the English language through written, spoken and visual texts of increasing complexity as they progress through their schooling.
An understanding of the English language is central to how we communicate and essential for intellectual, social and emotional development.
The study of English should develop a love of literature and learning and be challenging and enjoyable. It develops skills to enable students to experiment with ideas and expression, to become active, independent and lifelong learners, to work with each other and to reflect on their learning.
Film by the Sea
Film by the Sea is an initiative of a small band of dedicated teachers. These teachers firmly believe in the positive, educational benefits gained from teaching film and film studies.
The NSW English syllabus emphasises the importance of understanding and constructing multimodal texts and film making and film studies are an integral part of a student's education in the development of visual literacy. Studying and creating films also encourages problem solving, critical and creative thinking as well as collaboration and cooperation.
