Year 11 Visual Arts in Practice students engaged in a class excursion to the Museum of Brisbane to view The Designers’ Guide: Easton Pearson. The exhibit provided insight into the workings of two successful local fashion designers. On display were concept sketches, fabric samples and a large story of designs by Easton Pearson. This exhibition also described the creative journey and provided an enriching example of the inquiry process for students to view in practice.
Year 7 visited Lone Pine Sanctuary as part of their Science Biology unit, participating in the ‘Secret Life of Wildlife’ session where keepers spoke about different Australian animals, their adaptations and how humans impact on ecosystems. The keepers presented various pythons, the barking owl, magnificent tree frog and the white breasted sea-eagle. Students enjoyed feeding kangaroos, visiting platypus, Tasmanian devils, grey-headed flying fox and the impressive colourful Cassowary, where students observed the animals’ features in order to complete their Science Learning Task.
A huge thank you to all who supported our first CAN ExtravaCANza for 2019 at lunchtime last Friday. The Sophia Centre was abuzz as the Student Executive of the four CAN groups raised much needed funds for Caritas.
65 MSM French students from Years 9 to 12 attended the French Film Festival screening of ‘Rémi sans Famille’ at the weekend. Students and staff laughed, cried and were completely enchanted by this visually beautiful, emotion-charged film – many saying it was one of the best films they had ever seen!
International Women’s Day saw 700 MSM women come together for our MSM Foundation, Year 7-11 Mother Daughter High Tea. It was a delight to welcome back guest speaker, Fiona de Jong (Alumni 1991) to share her story which so aptly aligned with this year’s theme “More Powerful Together”
