SUCCESSFUL VCAL MOVIE FUNDRAISER
Last Friday evening the Collingwood VCAL students successfully delivered their 'Incredibles' Movie Fundraising evening. With approximately 70 guests in attendance the students provided a range of delicious food and drinks prepared by themselves in the school industrial kitchen. As a group of young people with little to no practical experience in running a major event, I was incredibly proud to see how mature, professional and committed they were delivering a great event. Excellent work all.
With big shout outs to the following students for a best on ground effort:
Hannah Newman, Iman Manzi, Paige Montague, Rosemary Nguyen, Glorija Jolevska, James Stewart,Om Khwomkhunthot, Nicci Somerville and Darcy Cole.
I would like to very much thank all the parents and staff that supported the event. With special acknowledgements to:
- Key VCAL staff Chef Judy, Robert and Cally for working tirelessly on the night to support the students.
- Principals Dale, Judith & Sam for their continuing support and confidence in our VCAL students
- The many parents who took the time to attend the event and complement the students efforts.
The VCAL students are currently working on a film and Fanzine project to be launched in term three so stay tuned.

'THE CRUCIBLE' - TICKETS ON SALE MONDAY
Collingwood College and Fitzroy High School's Year 12 Theatre Studies class presents an adaption of Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible” from July 26th - 28th in the Collingwood College Theatre.
The performance season consists of three evening performances and one matinee:
Thursday 26th July - 7pm
Friday 27th July - 7pm
Saturday 28th July - 2pm Matinee
Saturday 29th July - 7pm
Miller’s timeless parable attacks the evils of mindless persecution and the terrifying power of false accusations. At its heart lies one man’s fight to retain his identity. Inspired by the 1692 witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts 'The Crucible' remains a powerfully relevant commentary on the struggle of individual conscience in a lethal climate of fear and intolerance.
The Theatre Studies students have chosen to employ the theatrical styles of Expressionism and Theatre of Cruelty in order to create a dark and political interpretation of Miller’s timeless tale. The entire performance is created and directed by the students in the Year 12 Theatre Studies class. VCE Theatre Studies requires students to focus on two areas of stagecraft including; writing, directing, lighting, acting, publicity, sound, set design, and costume.
DUE TO THE THEMES AND CONTENT EXPLORED IN THIS PLAY THERE IS A STRICT MA 15+ RECOMMENDATION
