English & Modern Languages
English & Modern Languages Department Head: Leah Gough
We in the English and Languages department at Cowichan Secondary share the goal of widening our students’ understanding of the world through rich literature study and dynamic language-learning. We provide top-level instruction in the Hul’qumi’num, French and Spanish languages which will be invaluable to the students’ future success in our Valley and beyond. As well as offering all of the standard English Language Arts courses, we also have options to pair the language arts with outdoor education, theatre production and environmental stewardship! In our department, students are encouraged to use their passion to further their learning.
