Harrisdale’s 2020 showcase of visual and performing arts culminated with An Evening With The Arts, held yesterday. The event opened with an exhibition of art, fashion and digital technologies that attracted a large audience and elicited high praise for the creativity and talent of the hundreds of students whose work was on display. The exhibition was followed by wonderful music performances, spirited dances, and two captivating plays. For the first time, An Evening With The Arts screened some short films created by Media students - clever productions that reflected on the emerging film-makers’ passion for their art. Congratulations to the students involved, and thank you to the very hard-working and dedicated team of Arts and Technologies teachers behind An Evening With The Arts.
As the semester draws to a close, Woodwork Elective students are finalising their practical projects. Some of the beautiful examples of their finished products, shown in the images below, are proudly displayed in our school reception foyer. These pieces reflect pride in endeavour and achievement. Well done, students!
The Dance Drama Showcase wowed the audience with their creativity and talent at our inaugural Dance and Drama Showcase. Well done!
