School of Communication
The School of Communication provides the opportunity for students to be embraced by the complexity and wonder of language. Language for all situations is explored and consolidated – social purposes, academic purposes, and work purposes. Students also experience the emotion of language as art in the form of novels, poems and film and they come to understand language as propaganda, mass media, and the damage caused when language is used as a weapon.
We aim to harness the deep humanity of language to crack open the world and students will be able to both expand their experience of life and succumb to the comfort of seeing their own experiences reflected in the writing and speech of others. Students will be able to clearly express their thoughts and feelings and use language to think critically and evaluate messages.
The School of Communication, within our vertical curriculum, aims to meet all students where they are at in their communicative skills journey, knowing them with all their strengths and weaknesses and building achievement, self confidence and joy.
