English as an Additional Language or Dialect classes are held to cater for our students who have newly arrived from a range of countries.  Students in their first 18 months of schooling in Australia receive intensive English lessons in a designated classroom for at least one day a week.  Once students exit from the New Arrivals Program, they have access in-class support with SSOs to assist them accessing the mainstream curriculum.

EALD lessons focus on speaking, listening to and written English in the first instance, and a Dari speaking Bilingual SSO assists in translating for our predominant Afghan population.  As students become more confident with English, other areas of the curriculum are introduced.  Students are assessed against the Language and Literacy Levels and are supported accordingly.  At appropriate times, parent involvement in EALD lessons is welcomed and encouraged
