School-wide literacy has been an ongoing focus at Queen’s for more than five years. 

We are continuing to develop and use literacy strategies across the curriculum. Professional development opportunities are offered during the year.

A sample of what has been achieved so far:

  • Subject vocabulary lists and literacy strategies for effective and accurate text book reading
  • Daily fifteen minute reading at the beginning of Period 3 in all Year 9 and Year 10 subjects
  • Promotion of personal reading
  • Reading challenges


School-wide numeracy is a major focus at Queen's High School, with the aim to have all of our students able to transfer their mathematics skills confidently and successfully across the curriculum.

Future directions: The teacher responsible for school-wide numeracy will work with teachers and departments providing assistance and strategies to use ‘common mathematics’ language across the curriculum.
