English News

Young Adult author, Ellie Marney visited Siena College last week to work with our Year 9 English students who are preparing for their next unit on ‘Crime Writing’.  Ellie worked with each Year 9 class, talking to students about how she develops ideas for a crime story. Each class then worked together on their own story concept.

This was an invaluable experience for our students to learn how published authors develop story ideas. Students will continue working in their English classes on their own story concepts.  We thank Ellie for spending time with our Year 9s and we look forward to seeing the thrilling crime stories they will produce!
