Creative Expression Week

Week 4 Term 4 saw the inaugural Creative Expression Week at Pulteney, and it was a resounding success! From Reception students in Kurrajong to Year 12 Art students, the week celebrated the breadth and depth of creativity across all four sub-schools and in every learning area. From chalk drawings and DJ sets in the Quad, to music ensembles and dot paintings in the Chapel, to music and dance performances in Kurrajong Courtyard, to busking and vlogging in the Prep Resource Centre, to an online virtual film festival… and culminating in the Year 12 Art Show in the Centre for Senior Learning… this week had it all. The innovation and creativity shown, by students and teachers alike, was truly incredible, as was the level of engagement. As an example of true project-based learning – not to mention genuine interdisciplinary links – this was a fantastic start to a movement that will only continue to grow. Thank you to the hard work and amazing efforts of everyone who got involved. We hope you enjoyed the regular updates, links and photos; below are some photos from the final exhibition of Creative Expression Week: the Year 12 Art Show.

Early in 2020, a single-shelled virus incredulously weaselled its way into the collective consciousness of the world, becoming the catchcry of the year in the public sphere.

Whilst it caused mayhem and dampened the mood of many across the globe, it did not manage to extinguish the optimism and enthusiasm of our bright, young, creative talent across many subjects including 10-12 Media Studies, English Literary Studies, English and Art.

Pulteney Grammar students have produced some outstanding work across a wide range of creative and journalistic text genres such as creative short films, multi-modal storybooks, music clips, mockumentaries, experimental and expository documentaries, TV news packages and instructional videos.

For the past two years, we have celebrated their work with the wider school community at an annual Pulteney Grammar Film Screening evening. This year, on account of Covid-19, we have opted to share the creative output of our shining stars, via the click of a button.

So, grab a stupid-sized soft drink and jumbo popcorn, get comfortable in the home cinema and click on the link below for some awe-inspiring, quality home-grown entertainment!
