Dapto High at Adobe HQ

Dapto High at Adobe HQ

Recently, Mrs Jones and Mr Toole accompanied seventeen students to Adobe HQ at Darling Harbour in Sydney.

The day focused on improving video literacy but the students also learned about what it is like to work for an industry leader in creativity and international software company. Students focused on learning how to use Premiere Pro to edit video footage. The following video story will tell you more about the day.

Enjoy!

“Your students and staff were all delightful, respectful and attentive. A tribute to your school…They seemed to enjoy and appreciate the experience.” Dr Tim Kitchen

Students would like to thank Dr Tim Kitchen for his guidance, kind words and support! We are all looking forward to the Adobe Day at our school on the 2nd May and seeing Tim again.

Year 8 & The Red Room Poets

Year 8 & The Red Room Poets

Year 8 students wrote some stunning poetry during workshops conducted by one of Dapto High Schools creative partner organisations, The Red Room Poetry Company, in our Bunyip Theatre recently. Lorin Elizabeth, a poet, gave a lively performance for the whole year group and then again to the smaller workshop groups.

Students came to the workshop with a talisman or object that was special to them. This was used as a stimulus for their writing. Listening to the student read their poems was a joy.  These students have entered their writing into the Poetry Object 2014 competition. Lorin had a wonderful ‘babushka doll’ as her special object and the students had a range of talismans including precious stones, quartz, rings, footballs and shells.

Students have had their work professionally published online here for you to enjoy.
