EAL/D Support

EAL/D program 2023

59% of our students are currently from Language Backgrounds Other Than English (LBOTE) and 46 languages are spoken in the school community. 

The school is allocated an English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D) teacher to meet the needs of students identified as requiring support with their English. The EAL/D teacher assists classroom teachers to design and teach differentiated activities for the targeted EAL/D students.

When students are new to Australia and require support with learning English, they participate in a new arrival program enabling them to increase their confidence in using English in the classroom and everyday conversation.
