English


English is the language of learning at HeronBridge College. While English is effectively the official language of the school, we are sensitive to children of other languages and cultures. Our children are encouraged to share knowledge of their cultures with one another so that they can learn to appreciate and benefit from the richness of the multi-lingual and multi-cultural society in which they live.

Our aim is to promote the intellectual, emotional, social and cultural development of our children by improving their skills in both spoken and written English and also by developing their level of competence in the use of the language. Our passion, of course, is to encourage a love of literature and, in doing this, to expose our children to a wealth of values, to the lessons of life and also to encourage a greater sensitivity and awareness.
