Term 1 has been a very busy period in The Arts with some amazing work being produced and created by our students from all areas of The Arts. 

Our Media students have been busy analysing various films and representations. It’s great to see their appreciation and love of film really grow as they learn how to apply the codes and conventions. Our senior Art and Studio Art students have been experimenting with various materials ahead of beginning work on their final pieces. The Year 9 Art students have just completed some amazing dry-point etching pieces and are about to start on creating some stop-motion short films using plasticine. We can’t wait to see how they turn out.  

In the Performing Arts subjects, our new Performing Arts subject at Year 7 and 8 has been a huge success. The new subject combines Drama and Music, giving students the chance to experience both disciplines at each year level. The Year 9 Music students are learning practical performance skills whilst the VCE Music students are perfecting their performance skills a head of their upcoming performances.
