On Monday 19th November, all of Year 10 and the Extension English Year 12 students, climbed aboard a bus to go into the State Library of NSW. Year 10 were there to experience the Seeking Shakespeare program and also to collect their State Library of NSW cards, which will enable them to access more academic databases as they continue with their HSC studies. The Year 12 students attended a session which was led by an experienced Teacher Librarian, on how better to research their current HSC projects.
The Year 10 students visited the Shakespeare Room which was built to commemorate the 300th anniversary of his death and to view rare objects and works from the Shakespeare collection. The students were then involved in a drama workshop based on his play As You Like It. Following this, the students were privy to a brief outline of Shakespeare’s life and were drawn into a dramatisation of his life. What a memorable excursion!
