Student Comments

"My average day consists of a three hour journalism class in the morning, where we dissect current stories in the media and discuss our own projects on which we wish to report. Followed by a drama elective and then onto Screen Production where our groups of four work together to produce each others work, assigning different roles such as lighting, sound, camera and assistant director".

"When I was going to embark on my first video with the sound and light, I could not believe it.  It was the first time in my life that I was doing such an exciting thing in class.  I had actors and friends to help me to produce my video. I was happy because I had control about everything, I was meant to direct every single movement of each and every person who was present."
