Year 8 SEAL
Over the last few weeks, the 801 SEAL students have been working on developing some persuasive infomercials about a selected product in English. The final products were presented at the 801’s Infomercial Academy Award Ceremony. The students dressed up in some fancy, award ceremony worthy outfits and enjoyed some popcorn while we watched all of the incredible informercials! The winners of the people’s choice awards are Zaali, Aleisha, and Aleria.

Year 9 Sculpture Class
Over the last few weeks our Year 9 Sculpture class have been working on turning ‘Trash into Treasure’ with recycled materials to create Steampunk Robots!
The construction of the robots consisted of bottle caps, corks, screws, coils, cogs, keys, broken jewellery, buttons, and apply 3 coats of paint to create a rusty metal effect.
They were required to collaborate in teams of 2-3 students, to complete this project.
