Today our Year 11 Children Family Community General class is joined by Ann Viivers from Uthando Project Inc. Uthando Project Inc is a charity project dedicated to the children of Hlabisa District of KwaZulu Natal, whose lives have been severely impacted by the HIV/AIDS pandemic sweeping South Africa. Using donated resources and the help of volunteers, Uthando Project Inc. creates brown-skinned dolls to donate to the children in the community to help encourage and stimulate their social and emotional development. Our students are looking forward to contributing to such a heart-warming project!
Well done to the Year 12 Drama students, who have worked hard for the last term to put together their production of The One Day of the Year by Alan Seymour which they performed on Friday to students and families. The students worked beyond the role of the actor with designated roles in lighting, sound, set and props, costume, publicity, and front of the house to realise this drama work. The piece explores controversial topics of the celebrations around Anzac Day and how this recognises the lives lost.
Last night our talented Year 9-12 Dance students performed at The South of The Swan dance showcase, taking to the stage with confidence and pizazz, entertaining the audience from start to finish! There were a lot of proud parents and carers there to enjoy the moment alongside our dedicated Dance teachers. Well done students, you were amazing!!
Today our Year 7 Gifted and Talented students visit The Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research to provide them with a hands- on experience of bio-medical research. Students learnt how cells cooperate to make multicellular organisms and gained an understanding of the size and scale of the microscopic world!
Last week, Mrs Spanbroeks Year 10 Drama students welcomed Ben Rogan from Black Swan Theatre into the classroom. On Friday, students participated in exercises exploring Physical Theatre, embodying different elements and characters, bringing scenes to life!
