English as a second language

English as a second language for Indigenous students

If your child is an Indigenous language speaking student they will have English as a second language and intercultural teaching and learning instruction as they learn the curriculum.  

This will ensure your child gains English and other learning skills to be able to access the curriculum by listening, speaking, reading, viewing and writing in English.

Your child's home language will be used in the classroom as a bridge to learning English and learning new concepts through English.

Talk to your child's teachers about English as a second language.
