English Pathways is a unique class offered by ELTHAM College which allows students to consolidate English language on the school campus. This extra English language support will assist students to settle into classes more quickly and will form part of their academic and social orientation program. In English Pathways students progress at their own rate, gradually transitioning into mainstream classes. Australian Perspectives provides an opportunity for students to build on their familiarity of Australian society and culture through both oncampus classes and extended out-of-school activities. The overall aim of the subject is to introduce students to Australian culture and lifestyle, as well as providing opportunities for improving English language skills.
