Students have declared the intensive learning day at Ulladulla High School a valuable experience.
On Friday, September 7, 267 HSC students from eight schools located between Eden and Wollongong, took part in masterclasses focused on their area of study and modules for the upcoming English exams.
Year 12 Ulladulla High School student Jonathan Penny said the student day challenged students to rethink how their approach is to study, by giving them additional tools to use in their revision.
Ulladulla High School’s English teachers Suzy Taplin and Jon Youens said the South Coast English Teachers’ Association aimed to host at least one teacher and one student learning opportunity for people living in regional areas.
“We have a fantastic team of committed English teachers and a school of supportive staff that contribute to the success of days like this,” Mr Youens said.
“The commitment of the English teachers across the South Coast brought this event together.
“Countless volunteer hours from Ulladulla High School English staff in coordinating, in addition to regional English teachers and Sydney ETA presenters Jane Sherlock and Tony Britten creating presentations, with schools travelling up to six hours in one day to attend- all contributed to the success of the day.”
HSC English exams will be held on October 18 and 19.
