It has been a fantastic start to the year for The Arts. Our students and staff are well rested after the break and can’t wait to create some amazing artworks and performances this year. 


We would love to extend a massive congratulations to Shayla Kimpton and Jemma Luke for having their work selected to feature in the Creative Showcase exhibition currently on at the Memo Gallery, Healesville.  



We also have a number of students that are continuing their passion for The Arts in further study. A number of Media students are completing a Bachelor of Screen and Media at Collarts while we also have an amazing Studio Arts student, Jemma Findlay, that has just been accepted into a Bachelor of Fine Arts at RMIT. We are so proud of all these students and can’t wait to see what they achieve in the future. 


Our Year 10 Media students began the semester by completing their first film-making challenge: The Timetable. Students were tasked with planning, filming and editing together a short sequence all in under one hour. They all did such a fantastic job. We can’t wait to see what else they create this semester. 




This year we welcome a number of new staff members in The Arts. We have Penn Valk (Drama), Taylah Mackie (Art) joining us in the classroom as well as Clare Assetta, Vivienne Doolan and Clint Eldridge joining us in Instrumental Music.  


This month’s Instagram Collage showcases the amazing work produced by our students late last year. Well done, everyone. You can check out more of our students amazing work at


We are excited to announce the plans are underway for our 2022 College Production. It’s all very hush hush for now. Rest assured that cogs are turning, wheels are spinning, and we hope to be able to announce our chosen show very soon. Keep an eye out for clues on the College Facebook page.
