​​Overview

English is the gateway to knowledge, the language of opportunity and one of the most widely spoken languages throughout the world. The English language provides students with a platform to some of the world's greatest literature and the ability to become a successful communicator across various fields of learning, long into the future. Yeronga SHS prides itself on providing students with opportunities to become critical thinkers, active communicators and evaluative learners, who are equipped with the skills to become successful, lifelong learners. This is achieved through targeting key literacy skills that assist students to interpret, analyse and evaluate a range of texts, whilst supporting the development of language acquisition; cultivating an appreciation of literature and creation of texts. Here at Yeronga SHS, our teachers are passionate enthusiasts of English and through differentiated curriculum opportunities they seek to provide students with the opportunity to delve into a world of possibility, creativity and exploration - where students will ultimately be challenged to achieve.
