This year has been a challenging yet gratifying in view of the teaching and learning of English, Fijian and Hindi in and outside of the classrooms at Khalsa College.
Mission/ Vision of the Language Department

Mission
Promote the advancement of the second language learning and teaching by creating opportunities for professional development by encouraging research and by facilitating the sharing of information and the exchange of ideas amongst second language learners

Vision

Enhancing awareness, appreciation, and understanding of the importance of second language learning and teaching.

The following aims are set at the beginning of the year and the teachers of the department cooperate and devote all their efforts to achieve their aims:

  1. To teach the prescriptions for all levels and to prepare the students for their exams at the end of the year.
  2. To develop the four basic language skills-listening, reading, speaking and writing.

The teachers’ initiatives and innovative methods of eliciting positive participation of the students in their assigned tasks are commendable. The students are applauded for being generally cooperative while satisfactorily responding to the demands of their English teachers.

 

Subjects Taught:

 The department offers English and Fijian to all levels and Hindi till Form 6 level. These students have a clear career path if they take the subjects seriously as they can take up jobs in the media industry, tourism industry, teaching field, public and the private sector.

The above results show the Department’s academic performance in External Examinations for the last 5 years (2005-2008). The department is working extremely hard to improve the results in English especially in the senior forms (F6&7) and achieve the targets set for this year (2009). On the other hand we would strive to maintain the good performance in Fijian and Form 4 Hindi.

 Activities

The students are encouraged to participate in the oratory competition and other extra circular activities to boost their confidence and creativity. This year the Language Department organized the Children’s Day Programme, the Environment week display around the school to raise awareness on Environment Conservation .In Oratory Shaniza of Form501 represented the school in the Save the Children Fund Oratory competition at Tilak High School in Lautoka.In addition teachers in the Language Department were instrumental in preparing the students in the Kula Film Awards, Hollywood/Bulawood Dance Competition and the upcoming Tadra Kahani. These activities have proved very successful and have boosted our students’ morale and encourage holistic learning in a child.

Finally I would like to thank the members of this department for their assistance, cooperation, dedication and hard work.

I wish all the students sitting external exams the best of luck!!
