The English Department

"The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing our thinking."  -Albert Einstein

At Holy Trinity, the English Department strives to foster a love of life long reading and learning through the examination of varied media texts and through the development of meaningful responses in written, spoken, and visual presentations.  We challenge students with critical thinking and communication tasks so that they may experience life as more literate and more cerebral beings.  It is through our questioning that we develop dialectic with the other, fostering an appreciation for diversity and the search for the unifying factors that dictate the narratives of our lives.

Holy Trinity CSS English Department runs locally developed course which lead to Workplace courses, applied courses which lead to College English courses, and academic courses which lead to university English courses.  At Holy Trinity, the English Department places a premium focus on preparing students for the OSSLT in Grade 10, beginning student training with skill development in Grade 8 and 9 classes.
