English at Cullinane College
What is English about at Cullinane College?
English at Cullinane College is all about allowing all students to be literate and thoughtful members of our community. To allow this to happen we identify the literacy needs of students at an early stage of their secondary career. Individual and class needs are identified to allow all students to critically engage with all text forms, notably those forms involving the computer and the internet. The program we offer is not prescriptive, it allows all students to achieve success in English.

English at Cullinane will give students the tools to do this.
