On Friday February 26th the Year 11 & 10 Visual Arts Students visited the Art Gallery of NSW along with teachers Miss Mari, Mrs Jones and Mrs Brunton. Whilst in the gallery, the students looked at Art Express to roughly gather ideas on the Body of Works and how previous students completed their Body of Works. We looked at our desired medium and how previous students had interpreted them in order to achieve their end results. As we look closely at their Visual Arts Process Diary, we’re able to notice the progress, interpretation, experimentations, ideas, inspirations and techniques of each student, and identify the process they followed in creating their Body of Work.

The results of the 2020 cohort in the HSC exams are testament to the hard work, dedication and collaboration between themselves and their teachers. At the beginning of the year, a target of 200 Band 6s for the 200th year of the school was set for the boys. Whilst COVID intervened, the HSC class did amazingly well and, despite falling just short of this target, acquitted themselves exceptionally well! It is also important to note that a number of students successfully pursued a vocational pathway with every student achieving ALL their competencies and desired level of certification (most of whom have achieved between 4 and 6 nationally recognised certifications). Congratulations again to all members of the 2020 HSC Cohort. A breakdown of the exam results are given below...

Mr John Chandran sent a thank you message to the boys which was played at the Advent Liturgy. Read more...
