The Preliminary and HSC English (Extension) courses enable students who are accomplished, analytical and imaginative in their use of English to refine their understanding and appreciation of the cultural roles played by texts and the significance of texts. The courses are designed for students with a desire to pursue a specialised study of English.

Students are required to explore the purpose of language and texts from a Christian perspective. Through this process students will evaluate the way in which texts can be used to shape or deny a Christian worldview.

 

These courses provide students with the opportunity to pursue areas of interest with increased independence and to theorise about the processes of responding to and composing texts. Through extended engagement in investigation and composition, students explore multiple meanings and relative values of texts. They explore a range of conceptual frameworks for the reading and composition of texts and examine a range of reading practices to develop awareness of the assumptions that guide interpretation and evaluation.
