ARTS SHOW - PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARDS

Each year, we hold an Arts Show where we celebrate the achievements of our amazing arts students. Last year we held a virtual Arts Show and everybody was asked to vote for their favourite artwork. The student who received the most votes wins the People’s Choice Award, which includes a cheque and a certificate. 

 

Congratulations to all these students who received votes in Years 7 & 8.

The student who won this award demonstrated authentic and independent artistic work practice. Congratulations to a very deserving winner - Dexter Percival-Cobb, the winner for the People’s Choice Award for Years 11 & 12. 

 

VISUAL ARTS CAPTAINS

This year two new leadership roles for Visual Arts students were created. Students completed an application where they demonstrated their passion and involvement in The Visual Arts and outlined ideas to further promote the Visual Arts.

 

We were so impressed by our applicants that we awarded three positions, not two. Congratulations to Louisa D’Ambra (Year 11), Kailah Hollingworth (Year 12) and Liana Kelemen (Year 11).
