News from the ISC

Although these events occurred in the ISC last term they are certainly newsworthy.

Year 9 Book Trailers  We held our 3rd Year 9 Book Trailer Award event on the 31st July. All year 9’s participated in this wide reading competition and the top sixteen trailers were showcased on this day. Kate Arnup announced the overall winners and congratulated the whole cohort on their achievements. The overall winner of the competition was Jazmine Doultree with “Linked”. She received a $50 Collins book voucher. Receiving the $25 Collins book vouchers were Harley Kewish with “Attack of Titan” and Ace Mitrevski with “Zombie B Baby”. We were thrilled to have these three students’ trailers showcased in the August/September Spineout online magazine. Click on the link to view. To see more book trailers produced by our students visit our wiki link here.

Lorna Sparrow Artist in Residence  In early August our students and teachers were engaged and inspired by well known award winning author Scot Gardner. Scot was here for three days as our 2014 Lorna Sparrow Artist in Residence. During his residency he ran writing workshops with our Year 7’s and 8’s and spoke to our year 9’s and 10’s about his creative writing. Scot is a highly acclaimed author of many novels that capture the very essence of adolescence. He is a brilliant presenter who delights his audience with his stories and humour.

Book Week  Book Week was a busy week as it was celebrated with a number of activities and competitions.

  • Prefects ( Mike Kerrison, Georgia Dunkley, Kelsey Retinno, Hugh Evans ,Maggie Taylor, Leah Sjerp and Lilly Walsh) visited year 7 English classes and spoke about their reading habits and significant books in their lives.

Head of Garnsey Campus

It’s been a dramatic week at Garnsey campus with the House Drama Festival held on Thursday. The four House plays were entertaining and quality performances and it was wonderful to welcome Mrs Esther Cribbes back to Gippsland Grammar as the adjudicator. One of the most impressive aspects of this day was the way students worked together from Year 7 to Year 12 to achieve such quality performances. The audience was equally impressive in their regard and respect for the performances and the effort of the ensembles.

There were some standout performances rewarded on the day:

Best Play - Blundell Bogong

Production awards:
Best Director - Blundell Bogong
Best Script - Wellington Binks
Best Design - Cranswick Dargo
Best Technical Crew - Wellington Binks
Best Choreography - Tisdall Hotham

Acting Awards:
Outstanding Lead Actor - Tom Anderson
Outstanding Lead Actress - Olivia Sclater
Outstanding Supporting Actor - Adam Judd
Outstanding Supporting Actress - Amelia Vuillermin
Cameo Performance - Tyson Whelan

Thanks must go to Ms Cindy Petersen for her guidance and management of the Festival , to House Co-odinators and House Drama Captains for their commitment and efforts and to all those involved in another wonderful day.

Cathedral Pantry Appeal
A presentation of over 1 tonne of food was made to St Paul’s Anglican Cathedral pantry today. Collected by each Mentor group over the last month, the cans and packets of non-perishable foods will be used to give to those in need in our local community. Under the direction of Mr Steve Anderson, this year’s appeal has been our best effort yet. Well done to everybody involved.

Study Boot Camp
This is a term, I heard a Year 12 student use this week to describe their holidays and the way they intended to approach them. Year 12 students have 12 days of school left in term 4 before they begin their examination preparation. For the most part all course work and assessment tasks have already been completed and the students will sit practice examinations in the second week of the holidays. Year 12s will use the first week in revision and preparation.  While many will attend revision lectures, the responsibility for study and examination preparation will be their own. I wish them well in this endeavour and encourage them to stay focussed, maintain some life balance and work hard to achieve their goals.

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.
