WORK EXPERIENCE 2017
Congratulations to Maria Alkhouri!
She has been selected as one of twelve students from around Australia to join the Bell Shakespeare Company for an incredible week of work experience.
The Bell Shakespeare Work Experience programme is designed to offer students an exclusive, behind-the-scenes experience of a working theatre company. Students will meet Bell Shakespeare staff throughout all aspects of the organisation, and learn how all departments have a vital role to play in Bell Shakespeare productions and education programmes.
The week will take place in November when the 2017 national touring production of The Merchant Of Venice, directed by Bell Shakespeare Artistic Director, Peter Evans, is playing at Sydney Opera House. Students will undertake various group tasks during the week focused on The Merchant Of Venice production, and present their ideas to Bell Shakespeare staff.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and we wish Maria the very best as she undertakes this incredible experience!

Congratulations to Year 10 student Savannah Roberts who was involved in a professional production of "Grease'' as a dancer. This was held at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre.
Laura Di Luzio took out the prestigious Yr 10 Science Technology Engineering & Math (STEM) CO2 Dragster final, beating her brother Simon in a controversial race. Simon's dragster crashed and didn't make the finish line leaving Laura's dragster to pass it and win...sounds like a golden Steven Bradbury moment.
