English as Second Language


English as an additional Language/Dialect [EAL/D] learners are those whose first language is a language or dialect other than English and who require additional support to assist them to develop proficiency in SAE [Standard Australian English].

At Moorooka State School high quality EAL/D programmes are targeted to meet the identified needs of EAL/D learners and focus on achieving specified English language and literacy outcomes. They are characterised by explicit teaching of target language and by flexible delivery and continuity of provision. They are informed by teacher understandings about the English language, literacy and the cultural demands of the curriculum and the present capacity of their EAL/D learners to meet these demands.

Currently Moorooka State School has a fulltime EAL/D teacher along with supporting Teacher Aide time.​
