This year the exhibition was held on Wednesday, 15 January at the school's atrium. Many of the students discussed the current issues that the world is currently facing like global-warming, social media, and diversity.

Every year, the school community comes together for a special Celebration of Creativity: the G10 Personal Project Exhibition.  At this event, parents, teachers, students stand united in their amazement at the in-depth work our students undertake in a variety of topics that, in many cases, links both to their personal experiences and their passions.  

This year the exhibition was held on Wednesday, 15 January at the school's atrium. Many of the students discussed the current issues that the world is currently facing like global-warming, social media, and diversity.

One of the Grade 10s, Kamilla Riparip, described her inspirational journey as to why she tackled the issue of ocean pollution:

“During the summer of 2019, I became aware of ocean plastic pollution and this made me increasingly concerned about my future. I asked myself: What if I can’t enjoy the one place that I love because the ocean is polluted? I wanted to raise awareness for this global issue but, at the same time, to show appreciation for one of nature’s beautiful gifts, the ocean.”

 

Kamilla decided to express her concern for this global issue through her passion for the Visual Arts. One challenge that she came across was the process of trying to create the most effective and appropriate design for my artwork, one which portrayed her unique art style but at the same time had an impact on her audience. Kamilla’s advice to the current G9 students is to see the personal project as a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity and in doing so, to give of their best in the time given.
