English is mandatory from Year 7 to 12. Hastings Secondary College prides itself on focussing on these elements of your child’s education. We teach over the mandatory hours in these subjects/courses.
Hastings Secondary College offers a diverse and stimulating English program, which opens up the world of language and learning enabling students to communicate confidently.
The program encompasses a range of texts drawn from literature, mass media, films, speeches and everyday communication.
Australian and contemporary texts are studied each year along with Shakespearean and classic texts.
Extension classes are offered while additional enrichment programs are available to all students.
A passion for literature is developed in students throughout their school lives. Their love and appreciation of poetry and prose enable them to grow as individuals and develop a perspective on life.
In Year 11 and 12 student may select from Advanced English, Standard English, English Studies, English Extension 1 and English Extension 2. These courses are offered every year, some of which operate as cross campus classes.
