Term 3, 2019

Here is our provisional timetable for Term 3, 2019. Since the term focuses heavily on writing skills (especially writing essays), all new students to Shakespeare Academy should first complete Poetry for Beginners during the July school holidays. This is to ensure students will be equipped with the notes to write the best possible essays during the course.

The term runs from Monday 22 July to Sunday 29 September.
