POETRY IN ACTION

The theatre group Poetry In Action recently visited the Duncraig campus to present ‘Words of War’ to our Year 11 ATAR English and ATAR Literature students. The presentation focused on the works of Wilfred Owen, a WWI poet, and explored the potential and power of words to capture the inhumanity of war. Not only was the performance entertaining, it will help students in preparing for their Semester 2 exams.

STARS OF THE SILVER SCREEN

Year 11s dressed to the nines as stars of the Silver Screen for their River Cruise recently. The night was a great success filled with dancing, laughter and making memories. Deciding the winners of the costume competition proved difficult with some very imaginative gets-ups including Winnie the Pooh, Top Gun, 101 Dalmatians, Prank Patrol and The Jokers. It was a tie for first place with Adam Fletcher (Halo) and Rylan Cunnane (Elton John) taking out the $100 gift voucher.

INSPIRING ARTIST

Year 11s recently joined Artist in Residence Rohin Kickett, a Noongar artist from the Ballardong region, for a two-hour workshop at Midland Junction Arts Centre. Students were asked to consider their own identity and connection to place, producing abstract representational paintings inspired by the Rohin’s techniques.

ISLAND EXPLORING

Soaking up the sun and exploring the sea; that’s the life of a Marine and Maritime Studies student! A group of Year 11 and 12 students and staff ventured out to the Abrolhos Islands in the last week of term, scuba diving through shipwrecks, learning about local marine life and even catching some delicious crayfish for dinner.
