Master Class

Master Class invites

Burpengary State Secondary College is proud to offer an annual Master Class program in creative writing. The Master Class program is explicitly tailored for students who excel in English with regards to the love of reading, writing and public speaking. Students who have demonstrated a particular mastery of the written word, and or excelled in national assessments are personally invited to attend.

The program consists of a number of workshops where students collaborate and engage with other excellent writers. Students from Burpengary State School and Burpengary Meadows are invited to join our year 7, 8 and 9 students and together they work to create wonderful stories based on a particular theme. The first edition of student stories was published in December 2015, under the title Courage.

Master Class runs twice a year and all students who participate are also involved in the Mystery Bus Tour. This Mystery Bus Tour aims to inspire students to create characters and settings that may be unfamiliar to them. Providing students with real life contexts for their stories is paramount to the program’s success.

The Master Class program is a wonderful opportunity to build on the capability of our best and brightest students. It is led by senior, experienced staff who have a passion and commitment to ensuring our best students are given wonderful opportunities to flourish.
