Sorry, I can’t confirm which school it came from…

(PS: Good luck studying for Paper 2 my dears!)

    This photograph really does symbolically represent what our state thinks of the subject ‘English’. We know how to speak English, so why do we need to study it as a subject at school? Something like Mathematics, which is essential to everyday life, should be mandatory, rather a language all Australians speak, English.

      Perhaps that is one reason why the subject shouldn’t be called English! Also, the year 2000 saw English become the official langauge of NSW…

    Ah yes, the ‘every day’ applications of HSC Mathematics. Real world topics such as: trigonometry! Quadratic polynomials! Integrating functions…!

    Oh how I miss my English class 😉

    Great picture. Maths is important, however it will NEVER be as essential as English. Ps I still have my English Exam 🙂
