Year 9 English

Year 9 classes study English across four core topics spread throughout the year. Students will explore a different unit each term, including: Survival in Novels and Film; Media & Persuasion, Shakespeare Comparative Study: Romeo & Juliet; and Going Global: Picture Books & Non-Fiction. Our programs are based on the K-10 English Australian Curriculum, with an emphasis on strengthening students reading, writing, speaking, listening and viewing and representing skills. Students will also sit their NAPLAN exam during Year 9, in which will be assessed on literacy including reading, writing and language conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation).
