Year 7 Art "Autumn Musings"
This week, some of the Year 7 art students were tasked with creating an artwork inspired by the changing of the season. Their use of colours and natural materials shows that sometimes all you need to spark creativity is to look outside your window.
It is lovely to see the students responding to remote learning with the same enthusiasm they show at school, and we are looking forward to welcoming them back and bringing that creativity back to our art rooms.

VCE Unit 2 - Subject Change Requests
With the process underway, it is a reminder that all Unit 2 subject changes are due Monday 1st of June by 3:00 pm.
Requests for subject changes will be consistent with the 2019 policy, in that requests for changes are limited to one subject per student.
Students should investigate and research any potential subject changes they are going to request. They are encouraged to have discussions with their teachers and families. We also strongly encourage them to use information and supports around them to make informed decisions.
If you have any further question about the process or the forms, please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the Senior School Team at any stage.

Year 12 Ensemble Performance
The Year 12 Drama class performed their devised Ensemble performance on Tuesday 26th to a small audience of Performing Arts teachers.
The students began creating, rehearsing and refining their ensembles in Term 1, exploring the themes of youth justice and protest. The stimulus material was the School Strike for Climate and young people fighting for change throughout history. The students created scenes using the theatre style of Epic Theatre, which explored the 1960 Greensboro sit ins, the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests and Velvet Revolution.
The students faced a real challenge during their playmaking process, having the approach to the ensemble transformed by remote learning. However, they managed to create insightful performances that communicated a clear message to their audience. The Ensemble was recorded for the class to share with their friends and family – so if you are a supporter of one of these talented students, please ask them to share their work with you.
The students involved were: Mikayla Abdo, Ozan Duru, Alyssa Kontogonis, Georgia Ogston, Anthony Sgourakis, Ned Tate, Shaan Walker and Nikolas Ziogas.
