Illford Photo Competition

 

While studying Photography, students at McGuire College have the opportunity to enter the Ilford Photographic Competition.

 

The competition runs during Terms one, two and three. Students can win individual prizes that are given a point value which goes towards a score for the school. The school can then also win prizes for their photography department.

 

This Term, Brody Atkinson won a Certificate of Merit for his photograph ‘FireFox’.  Well done Brody! Good luck to all for this coming term.

Dig Box Workshop

On Monday the 18th of June, Year 7D attended a Conducted Dig Box workshop activity run by the Shepparton campus of La Trobe University Department of Archaeology and History.

 

Students learned some Archaeology skills about unearthing the past and interpreting layers while conducting a simulated dig box under the supervision of University staff.  Students learned about the importance of Archaeology in interpreting and understanding history, while carefully excavating and interpreting strata, to uncover and interpret artifacts to tell a story.
