Gallipoli 2015 School Tour

Jordan Bailey, Nicole Freer, William Cassimatis and Catherine Said were our four school representatives who toured Turkey in April. They visited Dubai, Istanbul, Canakkale, Troy the Gallipoli Peninsula National Park and the Dawn and Lone Pine services.
“Before this trip I had an appreciation for the ANZAC’s and the Turkish citizen’s from a chair behind a desk within a classroom, but after going to Gallipoli for the 100th Centenary, I’ve learnt about the battle from a different perspective.  I’ve learnt about the pain felt on both sides of the battle. That after all the pain and suffering and sacrifice having to be made on both sides of the story, peace is possible.” Catherine
“We are incredibly grateful to have had this once in a lifetime opportunity to represent PHHS and Australia at the centenary commemorations and to pay our respects to those that have fallen. Lest We Forget.” Nicole

Jack and Tom

This short film, “Jack and Tom”, was conceived and produced by Mr Carter and Mr Egan of Miranda Public School. Two of our year 10 students, Jake Davison and Lewis Strudwick play the main roles. The film is a moving tribute to the loss of young lives at ANZAC.

African Drumming Workshop for Year 7 and 8

On Friday 27th February our Yr 7 and most of our Yr 8 students took part in a fantastic cultural experience. The students were led in a drumming workshop by musicians Mohamed and Yakou from West Africa.  The students were mesmerized by Mohamad’s stories about the African way of life and his drumming skills were extraordinary.  Yakou led the students and the teachers in several dances and every student had the opportunity to play the drums. Yr 7 were able to consolidate much of the rhythmic work that they have been studying in class,  experiencing techniques like call and response, improvisation and being involved in a huge ensemble of over 200 drummers!

It also links directly to the unit they are studying on STOMP Out Loud, which is exploring the use of rhythm patterns, different sound sources and layering of these patterns to create interesting percussive compositions. For Yr 8 it has been an excellent opportunity for them to link experiences across the different disciplines of Performing Arts by studying how music, dance and drama are inextricably linked in cultural music.

Thank you very much to Mrs Prestidge for organising and coordinating this fantastic event, which was enjoyed by students and staff alike.
