In 2019 the competitions will take a new format, so as to enable as many students as possible to take part in them. Also, there will once again be a Diurna Competition: a short 400 word article on a general topic related to the Classical Word. Articles should not be about personal matters, such as why a student is studying Latin or attending the LSS. Such subject matter is inappropriate to Diurna and is outmoded.There will be a $300 prize for the winning entry
The 25th Latin Summer School will be held in the Eastern Avenue Building, the University of Sydney, from Monday January 14 to Friday January 18. Day 1 begins at 9.00 am; every other day the classes begin at 9.30 am. Each day the School finishes at 4.00 pm, except Friday, when we conclude at 2.45 pm. Remember that class materials will be able to be found by clicking on the link at the top of the page by the end of November. Enrolments are now open. Parking arrangements with St Pauls's College have now been finalized, so we can their grounds as in the past. The price is $75 per car for the week.
