On Thursday 26 July the English department held their annual Shakespeare Festival. We welcomed our judges, Ms Mary Doolan, Mr Tom Guihot, Mrs Michelle Birrell and Mrs Elizabeth Bowman, whilst our MC for the day was Ms Natasha Bell. As well as performing for the festival the students were also being assessed for their Shakespeare unit. The students enjoyed the day immensely and the day was a resounding success. The following are the results for the day:
On Wednesday 3 August the Year 9/10 debating team and Mrs Birrell travelled two and a half hours to Trangie to complete two debates against Trangie teams A and B. As usual the road trip in the school car was great with the kids decorating the car with mintie streamers, there was lots of singing and of course the windmill competition.
