English is Australia’s national language and a language of international significance. In studying English, students focus on developing understandings about Standard Australian English and how to use it appropriately, effectively and accurately for a variety of purposes.

Through English lessons at MBBC, students develop an enjoyment of the English language as well as becoming empowered as creative and imaginative, purposeful and critical language users. Students learn how language use varies according to context, purpose, audience and content, and modes and mediums. The study of language helps students appreciate the social, imaginative and aesthetic uses of language. At MBBC English is taught through an inquiry driven model which is scaffolded to take in to account the learning needs and interests of boys.
