StromFest 2013

A huge congratulations to students and staff for a fantastic end of year performance to celebrate Dance, Drama, Music, Art, Photography and Media. Our new performance venue at the Canberra College Performing Arts Centre did not disappoint. Over 2 evenings our audiences were treated to a Visual Arts display in the foyer showcasing work from art, photography and media students. Then a 2 hour production followed displaying our talented students in all areas of Performing Arts. A big Thank You to the Arts Faculty for all their hard work and to our ever supportive parents who drop off, pick up their children and buy tickets so they can be part of such a positive school event!

Well Done Stromlo

Arawang Fete Performance

The Arawang Fete brings together music from Canberra College, Arawang Primary School and Stromlo High School to celebrate the talents of students from the 3 schools. Stromlo High School has participated in the fete in previous years and both students and parents have loved the experience of being involved and sharing the progression of the musicians through the various levels of Arts education at the three schools.

The fete is held at Arawang Primary School on Saturday 9th November from 2-7pm with the Stromlo Jazz Band performing from 4.15-5.15pm. Parents, guardians and friends are welcome to come and enjoy the fete and the music from Canberra College, Stromlo High School and Arawang Primary School.        

Students prepare to Come Alive!

The year 9/10 Page to Stage class are stepping up their preparation for the Come Alive Festival at the National Museum of Australia next term. The group of students researched their favourite exhibits after an excursion early this term and presented their ideas to the class for a vote. The winning topics were Olga Horak’s story and the intrigue around Roger Tichborne. The plays will be presented in two different styles, the first piece portrays the sensitive content in a mixed media form, with lots of sound, movement and mask, while the second is a more light-hearted courtroom dramedy.

The performance will be in Week 3, Term 4. You can check out either the matinee or evening show on October 29th and, while tickets are free, bookings are highly recommended!
