Last week the Year 11 and 12 Drama classes performed their ensemble pieces to an audience of their parents, friends and teachers. Each year students in VCE develop an ensemble and solo performance to a given prescribed structure. These performances take months to create, starting from early stages of researching and brainstorming, writing scripts and developing characters using their structure and their research of world events, cultures, and beliefs, and finally beginning the rehearsal, editing and refinement stages. Students are required to use a range of theatre styles within their performances to prompt intentional responses from their audience, being forms of either critical thinking or feeling, leaving them inspired to take action for a better world. All students performed exceptionally, demonstrating professionalism and skill in their craft.
There will be a junior art showcase from our Year 7 to 9 visual arts classes from the 17 to 28 June. Student artwork will be displayed in the Learning Commons, with all students welcome to view and enjoy the pieces during lunch times.
The new playwriting competition is going well with students meeting with Ms West, Ms Valencich and Miss Loubey regularly to develop their ideas and skills in playwriting towards our annual Christmas Production this year. Anyone is still welcome to participate, just come and chat to one of us or send an email expressing your interest and idea towards the theme of ‘a time for giving’. Scripts are due Monday 24 June.
Our students have the opportunity to join in some ‘Wonderful Winter Art’ Workshop’s this term with the first event taking place on 6 June. Every lunchtime on a Day nine, our students can get involved. Starting with surreal character portraits, then onto CD Scratch Art, mindful Mandala’s, watercolour, marbling and more., All materials provided. Contact Ms Inglis-Gillespie to book your spot.
