Celebrating Multicultural Day

The whole College was abuzz with activity and vibrant costumes last week as we celebrated the many nationalities of our students and families.  Run over two days for Primary and Secondary students, Multicultural Day has grown year by year as the students and staff share their heritage through classroom study and special incursions. The event is a wonderful expression of how unique God has made each of us, and how we all come together to be part of one community. The primary classes each chose a country of interest to study, with some classes integrating the country into all their classes from the start of term 3. Each class set up a display that included facts about their country such as traditional food, language, population, capital city and interesting facts. The students could dress up from any country on Multicultural Day and bring in a dish of any cuisine. Each student was given a passport which included a page from each country in primary and classes travelled through each classroom during each session answering questions in the passport that were studied. If students could answer the series of questions related to that country, they received a stamp. Classes spent a session sharing information about either their costume or food so that others could understand what it was or where the costume was from. Primary students also spent one session in a traditional Chinese dance and arts incursion. They learnt a few words in Chinese and watched a few basic dance

A Magical Night with Aladdin JR

We entered the auditorium with feelings of excitement and anticipation, looking forward to see how this year's cast and crew were going to entertain and charm us with for the evening. Welcomed by the unmistakable aroma of freshly popped corn seeping through the air and hypnotised by the mystical lamp encased in glass we strolled down memory lane admiring by the chronologically placed, life size posters of the musicals gone by.  Reminiscing about every performance we had attended together, and how each presentation had improved on the next. We were certain that this was going to be an extra special event! Feeling like we were in Broadway, we walked the red carpet to our excellent seats, impatiently waiting for the performance to begin. From the moment the lights were dimmed and the overture began we were transported to the mystical city of Agrabah.The Arabian palace and the glorious costumes were magnificent. The ever rotating props and sets, seamlessly moving on and off the stage stealthily by the silent behind the scenes heroes were amazing. Then there were the impressive lights and even a magical Genie lamp that mysteriously exuded smoked on cue! There was excellent sound clarity and spectacular digitally projected backdrops that enhanced the whole production, allowing the students talents to shine to their full potential.  That brings us to the real stars of the show, the students! The pride on their faces when they executed their humorous lines perfectly, portrayed their dramatic roles seriously

Exploring Perseverance

Last month, our year 8 students participated in an exciting one night hiking trip in Anglesea. This camp runs each year, concentrating on the theme of perseverance. Our aim is for students to learn practical ways to develop reliance and support for each other. Each homeroom spent two days hiking through Bells Beach, Iron Bark Basin and Anglesea Heath. The weather was beautiful, providing a great atmosphere for students and staff. Despite the nerves, our students were well prepared and came with a great attitude as they took off on the morning of camp. It was quick stop at Bells before we began our 14km hike along the beautiful coastline. The hike provided many opportunities to explore nature, build friendships and talk about our theme on perseverance. There were students who soldiered on while others did a great job not giving up. Along the way, we witnessed examples of team work, with students supporting each other in times of need. One student offered to carry his friends bag to help him out for a while. Another student offered his spare shoes for a friend whose shoes were too wet to wear. Students cooked their own dinner and had the experience of sleeping in tents, which for some was their first time. The next day was a shorter 5km walk, before lunch and our bus trip home. As a year level, we were proud of the way students behaved, their perseverance and care for each other - great experiences with lasting memories.

Top Arts for VCE Students

On Wednesday the 24th of April, VCE Studio Arts students attended the “Top Arts” Season of Excellence event at NGV Federation Square (Melbourne CBD). This was a special time where students gained insight on how to succeed in Studio Arts.   Students listened to advice from past year 12 students who explained their journey and provided tips on how to produce high quality artwork. They explored successful Art folios and marvelled at the amazing artworks exhibited.   Students also enjoyed exploring the Street Art from Hosier Lane and lunch on Southbank.   We are already seeing some amazing works produced by this year's cohort and can't wait to see how this additional 'real-life learning' will help them bring their artworks to fruition. Recently students have been experimenting with acrylic pouring and have been inspired by artist Joshua Miels. We are looking forward to seeing what else they will produce throughout the year.   - Linda Karman, Secondary Art Teacher ...
