Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Harrison

13 ENX - Extension English

In this extension English course, students will respond critically to a range of exciting and thought-provoking literature, including a Shakespearean play, film and other written texts. Students with a flair for writing are challenged with the production of a Writing Folio and looking at literature from a different perspective or lens also forms a key part of the course.


(Note : although not compulsory, English is strongly recommended for all Year 13 students who intend going on to university study. Level 3 English can be most useful in fulfilling certain course requirements. Those students intending to study any of the Health Sciences, in particular, are encouraged to examine the possible benefits of studying English at Year 13 level. Students intending to apply for Australian universities need to check their entry requirements carefully because some are demanding Level 3 English.)
