Semester 2 Dance Showcase
The students from years 7 through to year 11 performed in an outstanding evening at The Parks Theatre on Wednesday November 23 in 2 sessions. The evening showcased the curriculum dance subject and the co-curricular dance program. Their hard work and commitment were executed through their energy and charism on stage showcasing the exceptional talent and skills we have at St Michael’s College. I am very proud of the students and congratulate them on a very successful performance!

Inspired by contemporary artists Tom Wesselmann and Emma Elise the Year 9’s set up their own still life, photographed them and worked from their original images to create these vibrant still-life compositions. How good are they!

Year 8 Drama – Silent Film Festival Award Winners!
On Monday December 5, families and students of Year 8 Drama gathered in the LEC Auditorium to celebrate the work of this semester’s Silent Film finalists.
It gives me great pleasure to announce the winners of this semester’s Year 8 Drama, Silent Film Festival.
The Silent Film task helps students to develop essential skills such as communication, teamwork, problem solving, creativity, and empathy. The winners of this semester’s competition have demonstrated all these skills in abundance while also delivering highly original and engaging storylines not to mention successfully grappling with film technologies – well done, all!
The winning films have met the following criteria: elements of physical comedy, melodramatic plot structure and character types, student performances which are consistent, successful use of intertitles, music and sound effects, a strong overall aesthetic (cinematography & editing), as well as pace, structure, and flow.
Congratulations to the following production teams!
3rd Place – ‘Thrown Phone’
Remy Spells, Charles Gower Dunn, Liam Atkinson, and Fletcher Tape
2nd Place – ‘Don’t Ghost Me’
