SCU CAPA Day June 2017
In June 2017, the Maclean High School CAPA department had the opportunity to develop students HSC skills at Southern Cross University. There were only 6 places available for students in the areas of Creative Writing (song lyrics), Digital Media (film, photography and audio), Visual Arts (blended media) and Music (composition of contemporary Music).
Students were split up to work with students from other schools on the various projects.
The day culminated in a showcase in the afternoon, where students work was displayed to the entire audience. Short documentaries by the Digital Media group started the showcase, followed by performances of the pieces composed by the combination of the Creative Writing and Music groups. A colourful multi-image flyer was produced by the Visual Artists to take home as a momento.
Mr Fisher and Mrs Simpson were impressed by day conducted by SCU and look forward to working with SCU on future projects.
