Looking in, Looking Out…
Our annual Arts Festival week had a different look this year. Titled InSight, it saw us ‘Looking In’ and ‘Looking Out’ from our communities. ‘In’ our noticing this year we allowed time to look INwards to develop our collective awareness; and we looked OUTwardly asking ourselves, what is withIN our sight? InSight was specifically chosen for its connection to his year’s whole stool focus noticing and provided us with the chance to be both looking in and looking out.
Principal, Paul Whitehead said, “InSight saw us celebrate our children and young people together through the lens of our collaborative projects and the heart of the arts. Watching our youngest students arrive by bus, look up at the monumental church structure that is soon to be our senior’s school-home and then see THEIR work showcased and curated in such a beautiful way has been exhilarating. Sharing this experience at our new Maylands Campus has been an additional joy for me; to see children and families building memories together here feeds the Bold Park soul and seeing these old buildings welcome a community again is all we could ever have hoped for this special place; this special gift.”
Our amazingly talented and creative Arts Team Leader and Media Specialist, Rhys George, served as the creative curator of the environments and the organisational mastermind (as well as a key Arts contributor to this stellar event. Assisted by his team of creative Arts Specialists, Renata (Visual Arts Specialist), Danielle (Music Specialist) and CJ (Drama Specialist) as well as our College Tour Guides, Liam and Zara, this event was a week of moments of celebration between child and parent, teacher and parent, student and teacher as well as a whole community.
