Year 9 Integrated Arts Film

Year 9 film students are nearing the end of the Film Unit in Y9 Integrated Arts and students have been working on skills such as camera movement and editing techniques. This helps them acquire the skills they will need to complete their final 60-second Horror film after half term. Here Ellie Jeong and Ashley Koh demonstrate a whip pan to create a creepy finale to their scene and Ciel Noma and Fuyu Kaetsu have worked well to incorporate a Dutch tilt at the end of their scene to create an uneasy feeling in the audience. Both film tasks were completed during class. Well done to the film students involved!

Global Thinking – Sign Language 

The Global Thinking classes are currently studying an interdisciplinary unit on Inclusive Design. The purpose of the unit is for students to further develop empathy and understanding of the diversity of our world. Students have been learning about various disabilities and the challenges that many people face.  At a recent lesson, students learned about hearing impairment and the need to develop improved communication methods. Students learned sign language and practised phrases with each other.  They found it challenging but insightful. 

The video below features Cheryl Chan and Hilary Au Yeung from 08N1 communicating using sign language.
