English as an Additional Language (EAL) Program

Rosehill Secondary College’s English as an Additional Language Program provides:

• Small class sizes for optimum learning opportunities
• Student centred learning
• A whole school approach to EAL learning environment
• Access to computer network and multi-media resources

Who Qualifies for EAL?

Students are defined as being EAL students if they come from a language background other than English, and require additional support in learning English as a second or additional language.

Funding is allocated to schools to provide EAL programs for students based on the number of students who:

• Come from a language background other than English
• Speak a language other than English at home as their main language
• Have been enrolled in an Australian school for less than five years
• Attract Student Resource Package (SRP) funding. (DEECD March 31, 2009).

Student and Family Support

Rosehill Secondary College staff support students and their families through their learning journey offering an environment that is both encouraging and rewarding.

Our highly trained staff know how to motivate and empower your children to achieve all that they can through a very professional and realistic curriculum delivered in a purposefully and professional manner. We pride ourselves on offering programs that are both challenging and rewarding.

Classes

After enrolment, students are grouped according to their level of English, age and prior schooling. Classes are kept small (1-3 students) to ensure that students can receive the optimum amount of assistance from the teacher.

Program

The teaching program is carried out in English by an experienced EAL teacher with knowledge in teaching classes with mixed ages, abilities, and cultural backgrounds.

Students receive intensive instruction and are exposed to a curriculum designed in preparing them for mainstream schooling and life in Australian society.
