    In our four-day holiday program, we will preview your Term 1 course, Reading to Write. After a thorough investigation of the NESA English syllabus requirements for this course, which requires students to read classic literature and use this as a stimulus for their own creative writing, you’ll be ready to start your new school year ahead of your classmates. 

    Holiday programs are skill-based modules. Students will use a range of critical thinking questions to unpack the conventions of a classic short fiction, poem, modern drama, and short film. The questions shift from analysis to creative, asking students how they would change the ending of a short story, or to imagine themselves as a film critic.
