ESL

Our ESL Unit provides a variety of support services for students whose first language is not English and who have been in Australia for five years or less. Students may join the ESL programme from:
  • Milpera State High School (Chelmer)
  • local primary schools

We support students by:

  • providing Years 8-10 English, Science and History classes aligned to the Australian curriculum but which focus on explicit language instruction
