Planning for Staggfair 2018 will commence in the coming weeks. To be held on the third Sunday in March 2018 at Garnsey Campus, this biennial event is a brilliant whole School community occasion with its history extending back to the days when we were known as St Anne’s and Gippsland Grammar School (STAGGS), hence the name. As always, we will be seeking support from parents to help with the event and there is plenty to be done. Please consider the requests for assistance that will come in the next few weeks and consider how you can best contribute.
Theatre Studies Excursion
On Monday 21 August, students undertaking Unit 4 Theatre Studies travelled to Melbourne to attend the Malthouse Theatre’s Performance Examination Preparation Day. The Malthouse provided experienced Theatre Studies educators to discuss, evaluate and provide practical experiences for the performance examination. The workshop gave students the chance to take on the role of actors, directors and designers as part of an in-depth exploration of the Stagecraft Examination and to respond to monologue performances and design presentations, as they begin to develop their own interpretations and monologues. Access to such experts is critical as student prepare for the final assessments.
