North by Northwest

English2English1aThe English Enrichment class was introduced to the idea of ‘metalanguage’ and how the use of metalanguage can broaden a student’s scope of discussion of  literature and possibilities for their own writing.

On Wednesday 17 June, the Year 9 and 10 English Enrichment Group travelled to the Arts Centre Melbourne to watch the Melbourne Theatre Company production of Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘North by Northwest’ at the Playhouse Theatre.

The Play opens up areas of discussion directly related to content areas covered in the English Enrichment Classes. It was also a good  opportunity for the boys to see a mainstream theatre performance.
These sessions will complement the efforts of students in their mainstream English classes and provided a worthwhile and engaging experience.
