Isabella Cucchiara started this petition to English Department and Dean of Learning

The Year 11 English Assessment Task for Term 3 due date has been brought forward from September 14th, Week 9 to September 11th, Week 8. The reasoning that has been provided to students for this change, "We are very aware that the Examination Block begins in Week 9 and want to ensure that you have the weekend to study and prepare for the examinations. This change of due date will assist you in managing your workload" is believed to be an extremely inconsiderate choice by the English Department.

At this point in the term, study balance is vital in the lead up to the examination block and students are not only overworked but also extremely stressed about having to complete this task in a shorter time-frame with 9 days' notice of submission change. If the College is so concerned with assisting students in managing their workload leading up to each exam, the English Assessment Task due date should be pushed back to September 21st, Week 10. As most students' exams have been cramped into Week 9, it only makes it fair that this task is due the following week which gives students an adequate time period to focus on the completion of this task. 

We need students to sign this petition to recognise the strong distress it has caused across the grade and to be successful with our request to push the due date backwards to Week 10 on the 21st of September. Your support is greatly appreciated.
