Senior School Information Evening

Transition into Senior School 2016

Parents of Year 10 Students: SENIOR SCHOOL INFORMATION EVENING

 

As students transition from Year 10 into Senior School it is important that all students and parents are well informed about the process and structure of VCE/VCAL and VET. The first step in this transition is the Senior School Information Evening on Wednesday 29 July at 7.00pm in the Performing Arts Centre.

During the holidays we had one Year 12 and three Year 11 students attend the SEAMS (Strengthening Engagement and Achievement in Mathematics and Science) camp at Monash and Melbourne Universities. The camp aims to increase equitable participation and attainment of students in science and mathematics related disciplines in higher education.

The following 11/12 students have been on the SEAMS summer.

Sculpture

Year 10 Art

Inspired by Japanese Artist, Hiroshi Yoshii, Year 10 Art students created sculptures that reflect his style. Yoshii creates 3D illustrations so lively they seem real. He posts these new characters on his own blog The Daily Work after hours of painstaking and precise digital labor. Hiroshi is driven by excitement for his creative process and by pure love for his 3D creatures.

Magazine Cover

Students are exploring the codes and conventions of narrative in a variety of different media. They used Adobe Photoshop to construct magazine front covers to refine their technical skills and develop narrative in front covers. Have a look at some of the work our students have been creating.

Senior School

Well done to all VCE students who completed mid year exams in the last two weeks. It is a busy time with the transition into Units 2 and 4 and it is important that students stay focused and motivated as the term draws to a close. Students and parents are encouraged to communicate with subject teachers and Student Managers about any concerns or queries they may have so all staff can provide the necessary support needed for all students to perform their best.

Reconciliation Week

What a fantastic National Reconciliation Week! Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students invited the school community to celebrate the event. They cooked a Kangaroo BBQ for staff and students to taste. During lunch time students collaborated on designing buntings to mark Reconciliation week. These will be on permanent display in the College. Congratulations to the students who planned a successful reconciliation event.

Top Designs

Year 11 and 12 Visual Communication Design students were inspired from a recent visit to the Top Designs exhibit at the Melbourne Museum. Top Designs showcases the best student works for the VCE in Visual communication Design, Media, Food Technology, Design and Technology and Systems Engineering. Final works are shown alongside the folios that lead to their creation. Students had the chance to look through the folios and take photos to help them in the production of their own folio.
