Don’t delay – get involved NSW

Without a strong response from English teachers about what they like and don’t like about the Draft Australian Curriculum, the chances of it changing are slim to none.

Here are the details of consultation and information meetings happening in NSW in the coming month.

Remember, consultation ends in May, so make sure you respond as an individual, as a faculty, as a school, or as part of the profession through these meetings to make sure your voice is heard.

Because come 2011, it’ll be too late to argue.

Saturday 20th March 9.30am – 3.30pm

  • Armidale: Armidale High School

    Thanks for this Kelli. It is alos important for people to note what they DO like as well as what they don’t to ensure that these things remain.

    That is very true – we saw big problems with proposed changes to English Extension 2, all because policy makers had only heard about the problems in the course. There is much in what we do that we should fight to keep.

    Hello everyone , I’m Jean Hartman.
    Welcome to my homepage . I started writing in high school after a creative writing assignment for my English teacher. I did creative writing for several months before I thought about doing something else.
    I had always loved doing research assignments because I’m passionate about learning. When you combine writing talent with a love of learning, dissertation writing only makes sense as a job.
    I’m passionate about helping the students of the future in their school career. When they don’t have time for their paper , I am there to help.
