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.
Many thanks
Jason Drew
VCAL & VET Coordinator

'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

 

Tickets go on sale Monday 25th June. 

Tickets can be purchased in person from both the Fitzroy High School and Collingwood College Office or by calling:

About the Kitchen Garden Program

Collingwood College students participate in our Kitchen Garden Program as part of their school curriculum in Grades 3-6. Garden classroom occurs outside in all weather conditions, with students learning, exploring and practising the skills and knowledge to grow a diverse range of vegetables, fruit and herbs using organic growing methods. Students then harvest our seasonal produce for cooking a range of (95% vegetarian) delicious dishes in their kitchen classroom. The students learn and practise kitchen skills, techniques and terminology and also importantly, their communication skills, creativity and teamwork while dishes are being prepared.

 

Students, staff and volunteers sit at beautifully set tables sharing the dishes created, voicing opinions respectfully, as all students can benefit from sharing their individual learning efforts. Knowledge is documented in Kitchen garden books and shared to our school community via email, newsletter, display boards and importantly by our students.

 

For our students, an integral part of the enjoyment and richness of the classroom experience is the depth and loyalty of volunteering we have for our school program. These exceptional people of all ages, interests, backgrounds and skills ensure our curriculum goals are supported for our students.  Potential volunteers do not need garden or cooking experience! Attributes we seek are a personal interest to support our K.G program philosophy, assisting students in their learning around food diversity, seasonality, sustainability, garden and cooking skills. The K.G learning importantly supports and explores student’s emotional connection and enjoyment in regards to growing and cooking seasonal food. Good humour and the excitement of learning new skills and knowledge in a shared environment, the ability to commit to a day/time are also attributes we seek in our volunteers.

 

We welcome applications from persons in our school community, or friends/family who wish to apply to be a Kitchen garden volunteer. Please send an email to me at

[email protected]

(see forms below)

 

Please look at our school website (K.G page), if you are new to our school community for more information. Classes run in the kitchen Monday-Wednesday and garden Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

For those who may want to support our students and teachers in another way-we are always thankful for people to garden outside class times or on other days. Please feel free to email me with any questions. Tours for potential volunteers will usually occur after school hours with arrangement.

 

With thanks,
