Humanities

English

At Ridge View Secondary College students will engage in a variety of texts for enjoyment. They will be offered every opportunity to improve in both the traditional elements of English, such as reading and writing, viewing, speaking and listening, as well as critical literacy where they will reflect and respond to how different texts can shape values, beliefs and identity. It is our aim to help create confident communicators, imaginative thinkers and informed citizens. Students will develop the knowledge and skills needed for education, training and the workforce.
