English as an Additional Language/ Dialect
EALD is a program of study based on the language learning needs of students whose first language is not English. Lanyon High School maintains a strong and supportive EALD focus, particularly through direct support for students from the EAL/D coordinator at the school. The EAL/D Coordinator works with students individually and provides support to classroom teachers to help them cater to the specific needs of each of the EAL/D students in their classrooms. The EAL/D coordinator monitors and assists students with the language requirements of their subjects, including research, assignments or tasks which have a high literacy component or specialised vocabulary.
