At Bob Hawke College, students will build on their existing knowledge and skills in the areas of reading and viewing, writing and creating, and speaking and listening.
They listen to guest speakers, visit cultural sites, participate in workshops and host performers and poets. They work closely with each other to develop crucial skills in interpersonal communication and collaboration. Importantly, students are supported in continuing or establishing independent reading as a priority in busy lives through regular library visits and involvement in reading programs. Talking about what we are reading is part of the Bob Hawke College culture and reading for pleasure, along with our English program, helps to develop core values of empathy, resilience, creativity and critical thinking.
