This term, year 10 students had the opportunity to read and analyse the novel 'To Kill a Mockingbird', written by Harper Lee. It was the first time students were exposed to classical texts and although they were challenged at first, through detailed analysis and lots of scaffolding, they were able to appreciate the novel. Students seemed engaged with the film study, as they were asked to compare and contrast the film to the novel.
Both year 9 and 10 students were involved in a poetry slam program where a representative from LMA had visited our school once a week to help prepare our students for the upcoming finale in term 3.
I look forward to another fun filled term with all our students and pray they all have a great holiday. Looking forward to seeing them again in term 2.
