Over 16 days, the city comes alive with art performances at key venues and at the Festivals hub the Festival Village @ Esplanade Park.

Students who have done very well for their formative assessments will be nominated by your teacher and these students will then prepare to tell a ghost story for the summative assessment. All other conditions for summative assessment will apply except that the genre of the story is fixed as ghost stories. More information will be given after the formative assessment. Students who are very keen but were not nominated can still approach your teacher to nominate yourselves for this event after the formative assessment.
