EY8 Project – Captured on Canvas

My EY8 project is to promote travel and tourism in Tasmania during COVID-19 by taking photos of our local landscapes. COVID-19 has had a huge impact on the Tasmanian tourism industry, and I wanted to do something to encourage people to explore our own beautiful state.

I have a passion for photography and love being outdoors and exploring, so I wanted to incorporate both into my project. I feel that Tasmania is one of the most unique and beautiful places in the world, and as locals, we have access to some of the best locations. From Bruny Island to the Bay of Fires, I have captured some of the amazing landscapes Tassie has to offer.

My photos will be displayed as canvas prints and postcards (pack of 10), for the community to order and purchase on the EY8 presentation evening on the 15 September.

Busking

Middle School Buskers have been a real hit!

This week has seen the debut of many talented performers in the Busking Pit!  This student led weekly initiative provides a sense of soul into the Middle School, it has even encouraged so adults to showcase their vocal talents!  I congratulate the Middle School community for embracing this learning opportunity, the sound and vibe is something to look forward to every Thursday!

Japanese Learning

Once a term the College is lucky enough to have a visit from Yumi Orihara, the Japanese Language Assistant based in Hobart.  Last week many students across different year levels were able to engage in a variety of both language and cultural activities with her.  Our Year 6 students had fun folding “furoshiki” to use to transport their laptops, drink bottles, lunch boxes etc.
