All primary schools in the Broken Bay Diocese have adopted the NSW English Syllabus. It is presented in three stages with Talking & Listening, Reading & Writing covered in each stage.

Grammar, spelling, text types and handwriting are all part of the Writing Strand. Through writing, children develop many skills which assist in their overall mastery of the English language.


These learning experiences aim to develop in all the children the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes which they need to function in today’s society.
