English as an Additional Language
Our EAL program at Warrnambool Primary School is designed to support mainstream education and to develop each student’s English language skills so they are able to reach their highest competency of English, by providing focussed support. These sessions of support may occur within the classroom environment, or through small group or individual withdrawal.
EAL students have individual profiles created that are expanded on each year by the classroom teacher and EAL coordinator. These profiles will be passed on to secondary schools in their transition records.
EAL students work individually or in small groups with the EAL teacher and multicultural aide on a program that has been developed which reflects their individual needs at key points along their EAL pathway on the EAL Developmental Continuum.
