English study is mandatory in NSW from Kindergarten to Year 12.
Students learn about the English language through written, spoken and visual texts of increasing complexity as they progress through their schooling.
An understanding of the English language is central to how we communicate and essential for intellectual, social and emotional development.
The study of English should develop a love of literature and learning and be challenging and enjoyable. It develops skills to enable students to experiment with ideas and expression, to become active, independent and lifelong learners, to work with each other and to reflect on their learning.
At Cessnock East Public School it is our pleasure to acknowledge the Wonnaruah people, the traditional custodians of the land on which our school is built.
We pay respect to Elders past and present, and recognise their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship with the land.
At Cessnock East Public School we acknowledge the significance of culture in our education and thank the community for their ongoing support and for encouraging us to explore and satisfy our curiosity.
