News from the Art Department

HOUSE ART COMPETITION 2014  - This year the combination of Quick Draw House Art Competition and 9 Smith Social Service event was even more successful than that of 2013. Instead of four separate images each house had to contend with the problems associated with the production of a single and more complex chalk drawing. The mural was a reproduction of a painting by the French artist Fernand Leger who worked in the Cubist style. Each house was allocated a one quarter section that was given to the House Art Captions approximately one hour before the event began. The task involved greater planning as well as the need for co-operation between all of the groups. Overall the completed drawing covered an area of 8 by 12 meters (about twice the size of an average lounge room). I have to say that the atmosphere of the event was greatly enhanced by the food stalls of 9 Smith and great music.

This year Ms Lineham was the guest judge. There were three criteria worth 10 points each adding up to a maximum total of 30 House Points. The criteria were:

  • How complete the drawing was in the time given
  • The accuracy of the drawing
  • House participation

Ms Lineham commented that she was impressed with the huge scale of the chalk drawing and the mix of students participating. She also noted that students had to work in such close proximity and that this required a high degree of co-operation. Finally, she congratulated the three musicians who were creative and played wonderfully during the course of the event. The results for the competition were: In fourth place with a total of 25 points was Wellington – Binks. In third place with a total of 26 points was Tisdal – Hotham. In second place with a total of 27 points was Blundell – Bogong. In first place with a total of 28 points was Cranswick - Dargo

HIKARI GIRLS VISIT  -  Using the success of the chalk drawing produced in the House Art Competition as a starting point, the idea of creating something similar with the visiting Japanese students from Hikari was floated. After some discussion it was decided that our visitors would be teamed up with the current Unit 3&4 Studio Arts class to produce a mural drawn with chalk outside of the quad café depicting an iconic image from Japanese art history. The image was based on a woodblock print by the renowned printmaker Hokusai titled “The Great Wave”. It is one of thirty-six views of Mount Fuji.  The collaboration was very successful in that a striking picture was produced and more importantly, all of the participants enjoyed working together on a project that required cooperation, good communication as sense of fun.

Gymnastics - Secondary Interschool Competition

Last Tuesday 9th September, 4 girls from Gippsland Grammar attended the Secondary Interschool Competition run by Gymnastics Victoria.  This competition is for students who are currently competing in Gymnastics outside of school at a State or National level. Claudia Klose, Jess Lang, Simone Clamp and Hollie Rowand competed on the day and achieved a fantastic second place in the State 4-6 level. The girls all train and compete for Maffra Gymnastics outside of school.  All girls had a successful competition with Claudia Klose receiving a 5th all round individual ribbon and Simone Clamp winning the uneven bars with a score of 9.5 out of 10. Simone was 10th all round individual and Jess Lang was 11th. Hollie Rowand had a great beam routine coming 7th.  We would like to Thank Mrs Baker for driving the bus in some challenging weather and directions to the gym.

Year 8 Medieval Day 2014

This year our Year 8 group were particularly enthusiastic about Medieval Day. All our students – and a number of teachers dressed up in a variety of costumes. We had knights, peasants, maidens, as well as various royals. A highlight this year was our very own knight on horseback. Jake Smith, dressed in his knight’s costume rode into our Village Faire on his suitably attired Shetland pony!

This year at the Faire we also reintroduced Jousting, using pool noodles and a balance beam. Students enjoyed not only challenging each other but also their mentors and head of year. There was great delight at being able to throw wet sponges at the teachers while they were in the stocks too!

During class times, the students participated in a range of medieval themed activities, our Maths Department ran a version of ‘The Great Race’ sending students all over the school completing many maths tasks and challenges.

We visited St Pauls Cathedral where our guides explained many of the traditions which are still used today which may have existed in medieval times. Our students enjoyed this ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the Cathedral.

Our concert was a great success with music, singing, and drama performances. Our staff and students should be pleased with their participation and enthusiasm, making this day once again a highlight of our Year 8 program.

Yr 11 Geography Field Trip

On Monday the 15thof September, the year 11 Geography class consisting of seven students, Mrs Yeowell and Mr Ripon travelled by bus to Melbourne, with the aim of investigating the urban regeneration of the Yarra River Corridor and Docklands and also to study the development of Toorak and Pakenham.

After a relatively smooth running trip to Melbourne, the group first stopped off at the Eureka Tower. Whilst at the tower, the group learnt about its history and also got the chance to observe the CBD from Melbourne’s tallest building that would later be studied in parts by foot. Next, the group was fortunate enough to have a quick look around the backstage of Hamer Hall, whilst they were able to learn in greater depth about the development of the building but also about other buildings in the area.  After a short lunch break, the group then travelled by foot around parts of the Yarra River Corridor followed by Docklands in order to compare the two areas, but also to study the great amount of development that has taken place in the two locations in recent years.
The next morning, the group departed the Claremont hotel where they had stayed the night and travelled to Toorak in order to study various elements of the area and also to complete various surveys. Lastly, the group journeyed around Pakenham in order to compare the other locations that were previously seen on the excursion with a part of the rural urban fringe. Overall the trip was a great success, however would not have been possible without Mr Ripon who drove the class around everywhere throughout the excursion.
