AFP Media Commencement 

Sadly, for obvious reasons stemming from the pandemic, it was impossible for the Year 11 graduating class of Agence France Presse (AFP) Digital Media students to have their usual ceremony in the school hall. However, students have already received their US University-style transcripts, which highlights the learning covered and bespoke examples of individual student contributions to the course. 

The 2021 graduation class included fifty students. We are delighted to announce that we had a 100% pass rate, ten of whom qualified for the High Achievement Award or the equivalent of 94% and above. This was the highest number of students to ever achieve this grade in the four years that the qualification has been offered at South Island School. Congratulations to Thomas Hafner (11C1), Saloni Sethi (11K1), Aashika Mamgain (11N2), Zahabiyah Boty (11B2), Colette Wong (11N2), Vivienne Chung (11B2), Aliyah Sat (11C2), Chloe Byrom (11K2), Venus Lee (11N1) and Sophie Whitton (11S1).

In addition, as part of the annual, South Island Film & Media Award ceremony, a number of students were nominated in four categories associated with tasks completed in the second year of the course. The nominees and winners are listed HERE.
