Horsham College is proud of its increasingly diverse student body with many migrant families now making Horsham and the Wimmera Region their home. In order to support students who speak a language other than English at home, Horsham College delivers both intensive English Additional Language (EAL) classes and in-class support where required. The EAL program provides students with small-group intensive English language tuition with a specialist EAL teacher. These sessions support students in developing their English language proficiency, understanding the academic language used in mainstream classes, and building awareness of Australian culture and the Australian school system. In addition to EAL classes, students have access to in-class support to assist them in engaging with lesson content and understanding task requirements. An EAL specialist teacher also works closely with the classroom teachers of EAL students to ensure teaching strategies, lesson materials and tasks are differentiated and accessible for EAL students.
