Parents' guide to the new NSW English K-10 Syllabus.

  • Students develop their language skills through activities involving speaking and listening, reading and writing, and viewing and representing.
  • They learn about language and literature through working with a wide range of print, spoken, visual, media, multimedia and digital texts.
  • They interpret and express their views on what they hear, see and read.
  • They create written and digital texts, and deliver formal and informal presentations.
  • For the first time, there will be a requirement that students experience a range of texts, including Australian works, multiculturalism, Aboriginality and Australian identity, and Asian perspectives.
  • There is an increased emphasis on grammar and the teaching of quality literature.

Parent Workshop: Helping your child with reading
We recently held two parent workshops to help support children's reading at home.  Our Learning and Support Teachers, Lorraine Latimer and Jill Holden created this short video to share with parents who were unable to make the workshop.
