Welcome to the English Faculty at Kelston Girls’ College.

We aim to provide your daughter with rich learning experiences that will develop her practical skills in the use of English as well as enhance her ability to think critically about the issues that are important to us all as human beings. We recognise and celebrate the prior knowledge each girl brings from her unique identity, culture and life experience, and encourage all students to bring this into the classroom to empower them in their learning.

English has its own subject specific content but it is also a way for students to develop their literacy skills. Students will receive ongoing practical instruction in reading, writing and speaking that will support their learning in all subjects.

Teaching and learning throughout the year at all levels are based on central themes. Students will explore these themes through a range of literature and respond in written, visual or oral form.

Our Teachers:

  • Rebecca McGrath – Middle leader; 
  • Sehaam Hussein-Moheed – Assistant Middle Leader; Year 9, Level 2 and 3 English
  • Lusia Magasiva – Year 10, Level 1 English
