Why is the skill of essay writing important?

  • Understanding and using language effectively is a critical skill which is needed beyond a student’s school years.
  • Developing the skill of essay writing at school gives students the capacity to write and express their ideas.
  • Writing is an understated behaviour and has been challenged in the “digital” world which our children have all become accustomed to. Our mission is to engage students in reflective thinking and improve their ability to communicate with other people.
