This year students from Mentone Girls and Sandringham College came together at the Beaumaris Campus to create an Alliance of Excellence.
One of the classes was units 1 and 2, Product Design and Technology, Textiles. Amy Willett was the teacher, and her students have designed and made some amazing garments. Unit 2 gets students to work as a team to design and create a product or range of products. They are nearing completion and look fabulous.
Sandringham College will be establishing a sports enhancement program in 2014. The program will aim to develop students sporting and academic abilities through a curriculum focused on accelerated learning using the long term athlete development model.
A select group of students from the three sites got together today to participate in a student forum at the Beaumaris Campus. The forum enabled the students to voice their thoughts and ideas on the proposed program.
The afternoon involved a visit and tour of the Victorian Institute of Sport. Here they were taken on a tour of the institute by 5 time world champion aerial skier, Jacqui Cooper. Throughout the tour the students asked insightful questions about the role of the institute in supporting Victorian athletes to achieve success in sport and life.
The diverse cultural environment of the Senior Campus Visual Arts community provides students with a nurturing and open space to express their ideas about the world and their place in it. Freedom of expression and openness to difference in our community allows students to be themselves and to be comfortable in who they are as young adults.
Here are a few pics of our creative students at work which I think show this celebration of individuality.
