On the last day of Term 3, the year 11 Advanced English cohort, accompanied by their teachers (Ms Yong, Ms Bonis and Ms Ball) watched a performance of Shakespeare’s Macbeth at the Pop Up Globe in the Entertainment Quarter.

Performances at the Pop Up Globe are still running until December 1 and I thoroughly suggest you go experience the world of Shakespeare (https://popupglobe.com.au). The following pieces are reflections by the students of their educational, enjoyable and at times uncomfortable experiences.
