Arts Jam 2018.

This year marked our 4th Arts Jam festival showcasing the best of The Arts and Home Economics. Year 11 student Dylan Kristian McCaig kicked off the night by performing songs from his new solo music album: 'Mended Wings and Broken Words', our Drama Club students put on a brilliant show and the dance performances were wonderful.

Our hallways and classrooms were filled with incredible student work across Media, Fashion, Graphic Design and Visual Art and it is clear that a culture of excellence is building at the College.

Finally, Arts Jam wouldn't be complete without our very own Arts Jam 'Jam' made by our Food Science teachers and showcasing the graphic design work of one our students Kaylee Smith.

Arts Jam is a fantastic way to end the year, by celebrating the achievements of our students and our hard working, passionate and dedicated staff. Thank you to everyone who was part of this event, particularly Ms Ward our wonderful Head of Arts who made it possible. ... See MoreSee Less

Model United Nations
This term Ms Lytas organized for UN Youth to run a Model United Nations workshop and competition for Year 8 and 9 students at the College. In pairs, students were given a country from the UN Security Council that they had to research and represent. Using team work, public speaking and negotiation skills, students had to convince the other participants to reach a compromise on global issues such as gender equality, torture and water accessibility. A big thankyou to Year 10 and 12 students who came in to assist and Ms Woulfe for her work in preparing the students.

CAD Creations

Over the course of 2018, Mr Murcott's Year 10 CAD (Computer Assisted Design) students have been working on a number of different design projects. These projects have required the students to design components that can be produced using the laser cutter and 3D printer. To do this, students have had to create models and drawings using software such as Tinkercad, Sketchup and AutoCAD.

The student projects have included clocks, flat pack furniture similar to what you might buy at IKEA, cookie cutters and toys. Two students even created a fully functional ukulele! Along the way the class had some struggles with identifying and working within the capabilities of each software program, collaborating as teams to ensure parts fit together, and dealing with sizing issues due to tolerances from the technology. At the end of the day, the students were able to overcome these challenges to display high levels of competence with the modelling software and have further developed their teamwork skills to produce functional products.

These students have demonstrated a great number of skills relevant to STEM education, which will continue to move them forward in the ever advancing world of technology around us. ... See MoreSee Less
