Well, what a ‘Brave new world’ we have entered with online learning and virtual classrooms over the past week or two.

This is indeed a challenge and one we are sure our students will rise to meet. Teachers have been busy planning lots of learning and working on ways to maintain collaboration and engagement for all of the boys in our care from Shakespeare to Writing with Minecraft the opportunities are endless.

We would love to invite you to participate in any of the following competitions ahead of our inaugural ‘St Edward’s College Virtual Writer’s Competition’ (more on this in Term 2).

For the competitions listed below you could use something from your journal or portfolio or create something entirely new. The choice is yours and there are some great prizes up for grabs. You can email your English teacher or Mrs McDonald for further information or assistance. Good luck and happy writing.
