DAV Debating Round 2

On Wednesday, March 17, our Year 9 and 11 debating teams participated in the second round of DAV debating. The boys represented the College really well but unfortunately lost to some very competitive teams. A big thank you to coaches Glenda Morris, Bridie Laffey and Nathaniel Winfield in preparing their teams for each debate. The boys get a bit of a break until Round 3 which is in Week two of Term 2.

Theatre Studies Class Workshop

On Friday, March 12, the senior Theatre Studies class participated in a Commedia Dell’Arte practical workshop with playwright and theatre practitioner Rosa Campagnaro. This was a fantastic opportunity to learn about the masked characters of Commedia and delve into this wonderful theatre style. The class will be working on staging a performance of Rosa’s translation of the 16th century text ‘The Servant of Two Masters’, as part of their Semester One study, which will be performed in Week six of Term 2.


House Theatre Sports

A reminder that the House Theatre Sports Competition kicks off this week on Thursday, Week 8 and continues in Week 9 at lunch time in the Black Box Theatre from 1:15-1:45pm. Students will compete in their house team in a series of drama improvisation games such as Space Jump and Death in a Minute.
