English - Stage 5 (Yrs 9 - 10)

Students continue to develop and refine their skills in writing, reading, speaking, listening, viewing and representing. They further develop their skills in thinking critically and imaginatively through responding to and composing a wide range of increasingly complex texts in a range of contexts.
