Throughout the past two weeks, the students in CLC have been learning about photography techniques and have been exploring forced perspective using props.
Forced perspective is a photoraphic technique of photographing an object from afar and another object closer to the camera, to make appear larger or smaller than they actually are.
Students found that the trick to taking a convincing example of forced perspective is to use expression and the correct angles so that the objects look like they're interacting with each other.
This week in Performing Arts, students in SLC are experimenting with an in camera photo technique called 'Forced Perspective'. Students have explored how an object can look larger or smaller depending on how far from the camera it is and have experimented with this optical illusion!
YYLC students this term have been refining their acting and production skills to create NEWS Reports for Mernda Park News (MPN). We have focused our attention on being able to film clear shots using the rule of thirds and learning how to conduct interviews for a report.
Fantastic work Yan Yean students and well done to Hamish and Mia for hosting the NEWS for our groups. We hope you enjoy!

We have been exploring mime in Performing Arts and experimenting with facial expression, exaggerated action, energy and clear actions. We have been practicing various acts such as 'The Box', 'The Flower', 'The Balloon' and 'Tug-of-War'.
This term in Performing Arts, students in SLC have been learning and experimenting with the art of storytelling and puppetry. Students collaborated in groups to determine roles (including a narrator), add elements of drama to their storytelling and rehearse their shows before presenting them to an audience of their peers.
Please enjoy this video of one of our amazing year 6 students performing the song 'Elevator Music'! What a SUPERSTAR!
In Performing Arts this term, CLC students have been exploring the elements of drama, in particular tension and contrast. Dramatic tension drives our drama and keeps the audience interested and engaged. Contrast in drama is when we are seeing opposites. Students have experimented with power & status, character's personalities, character's emotions and life experience.
