Literacy & Numeracy
ESL (English as a second Language)
Our English as a Second Language class will increase your confidence and ability in reading, writing, spelling and listening as well as improve your punctuation and understanding of the English language. We will help you to communicate more effectively. English as a Second Language classes help with returning to study and preparing for work, Australian culture in the workplace, Current Affairs and conversation. This year we will go to see a film, go on city and local excursions as well as have guest speakers and have special morning teas where you can practice your conversation skills. We can adapt the classes to meet individual needs as well as cover preparation for Australian Citizenship with Australian history, geography and culture. Learn in a warm friendly environment with a caring teacher.
