July School Holiday Workshops (Winter 2018)

We have a tentative schedule for the July school holiday workshops during the first week of the public school holidays. These courses will be held in both our Chatswood and City locations.

This school holiday, we are pleased to introduce the Shakespeare Academy Book Club, where students a given a novel to read before discussing it with their peers. This is a fun and interactive way for students to engage with reading, and to learn how to articulate and share their thoughts in an pseudo-academic environment.
