English Themed Week kicks off on Monday with several exciting events for the whole school. In Secondary, Monday lunchtime in the Atrium sees the judging of students’ Dioramas based on a scene from a favourite book or a poem, as well as the start of the Mini-Saga challenge. Year 8 on Tuesday will be involved in a poetry workshop, and at lunchtime, there will be the opportunity for all to ‘Blind Date’ a book. Mary Murphy, a renowned journalist, travel writer, blogger and leader in public speaking workshops is coming in on Wednesday to work with Year 10 and 12 on honing their public speaking skills. At lunchtime on the same day, we are hosting our second ever Spelling Bee Competition. Thursday is World Book Day and students and staff are encouraged to join in with the spirit and dress as a literary character and have their photograph taken at lunchtime in the Atrium. On this day, we also have our fourth Boscars Awards Ceremony where Year 9 films are awarded prizes in the categories: Best Film, Best Editing and Best Music. Throughout the week, there will be a Poet-Tree in the Atrium to hang favourite quotations from, as well as house activities to engage with during registration time and Secondary school students reading to Primary.
