Books, films, songs and poetry help us to find a voice to tell our stories; a voice that can be creative, critical and inspirational. We want all our students to extend their imagination through language and literature from a diverse range of cultures, and become sophisticated speakers and writers. English connects our students to a wealth of ideas through a range of cultural literature that challenges them to think about their own sense of identity, their relationships with others and their place in society. Students are given tools to unlock skills that enable them to successfully participate in the social, cultural, and political life of
New Zealand and the wider world.
