Get ya geek on: Really useful resources for NCEA English

BooksFrantically trying to get back up to speed with NCEA English? These websites will help!

Wide reading and themed reading assessments

Our book lists and the Golden Bay High School Wiki are good places to start. You can also go to our Facebook page or ask a librarian for suggestions right here, right now on this blog. There are plenty of reading recommendations on our website, too.
Get together with your friends to talk about what you’re reading. This will help you become really skilled at identifying and discussing themes and characters when exam time comes around.

Looking for short stories?

Start your search in our Short Story index – you’ll need your library card number and PIN. Try LitFinder for poetry.

Want something written by a New Zealander?

The New Zealand Book Council’s website will come in handy, as well as the New Zealand Electronic Poetry Centre.


Let’s not forget about dear old Shakespeare! The Shakespeare Resource Center has his complete works. Can’t be bothered reading the play? Watch the DVD instead.
