Term 2 has been a time for assessment and consolidation in The Arts, with many of our classes undertaking practical activities focusing on skill development, creating and making. Throughout the Arts this term, Year 7 Drama students have been busy working on their Fairy Tale Performance, while Year 8 Music students have been putting their musical skills to the test by creating short pieces of original music. In Year 8 VCD, students have been completing their visual pun tasks, while Year 9 Art students have been exploring photography. In the senior school, our VCE Media Art, VCD and Studio Arts students have been busy finishing off their Unit 3 SATs. They have created some amazing work that we can’t wait to share with everyone next semester.
Our Media students in Years 10, 11 and 12 have been super busy finishing off the last remaining work for the semester. Our Year 10 students have shown fantastic time management skills in completing their film posters and their final short film productions in the last few weeks. Our Year 11 students have completed their recut film trailer, which turned out fantastic, while our Year 12 students have just completed their planning documents for the production that they’ll create next semester. We can’t wait to see how they all turn out.
