From the Principal

The wind is in the barley-grass The wattles are in bloom The breezes greet us as they pass With honey-sweet perfume; The parakeets go screaming by With flash of golden wing, And from the swamp the wild-ducks cry Their long-drawn note of revelry Rejoicing at the spring. A.B.Paterson Isn’t it lovely to feel Spring in […]

Class 6 day in the 1850’s

The Summer Day reimagined

In Year 11 English Standard, we have been studying poetry from a recent anthology compiled by Paul Kelly, including Mary Oliver’s well known poem The Summer Day that celebrates the wonder of life via close observation of the natural world.
