Congratulations to Layla Z-V and Amy L who were both awarded Highly Commended in the Mosman Youth Awards in Literature 2018 Senior Prose and Poetry Category. Layla’s short story and Amy’s poem won the awards competing against students from a large number of local schools. Writers’ Group offers all students opportunities to enter writing competitions and runs during Terms 1, 2 and 3.
Congratulations to Isabel A and Joumana Q who both completed the Extension 2 HSC English Course 2018 and recently submitted their Major Works to NESA for HSC marking. Isabel composed an historical criticism of Les Miserables in comparison to others of Victor Hugo’s works titled “History, as written by the Victors”. Joumana composed a 6000 word short story called “Wine-Dark” about the cults of Dionysus in Ancient Greece. Extension students study Literature at Extension level for their HSC and then research, draft and produce their own Major Work. We wish them luck as their Major Works are currently being marked.
