The Importance of Literacy

Developing literacy

The study of English is central to the learning and development of all young Australians and it underpins all of our work at Victor Harbor R-7 School.

The development of English literacy helps create confident communicators, imaginative thinkers and informed citizens. It is through the study of English that individuals learn to analyse, understand, communicate and build relationships with others and with the world around them.

The study of English helps young people develop the knowledge and skills needed for education, training and the workplace.
