School goes on show at open day

BUNDAMBA State Secondary College recently hosted its open day.

The open day is run to show the community and future students all the wonderful resources that the school has available.

The day showed off the school's Leadership Training Centre, a building that contains rock walls, rope ladders and numerous other climbing apparatus.

Departments that didn't have buildings resorted to other means of drawing in guests, which allowed visitors to participate in something most may never have experienced before .

Mrs Matthew, a humanities teacher, was spotted dressed in a toga with a wreath upon her head to gain the attention of the day's participants.

In the Performing Arts Centre all those involved in art subjects, and film and television,got to show off their work.

Visual arts students had their work displayed on walls and their other artworks displayed in the foyer.

On stage there was no shortage of singers or talented guitarists and keyboardists.

Dancers of various year levels took to the stage and had the audience in awe.

The works of film and television students were shown on projectors inside the building.

Two of the biggest performances in the Performing Arts Centre were a rehearsal of Pens Down, the school musical starring Liam Coles, Matthew Lock, Jennifer Price and many other talented people.

The other performance was the senior drama student's rendition of Faustus.

The play was a physical theatre piece about a greedy man, played by Nicholas Sinclair, selling his soul to the Devil, Luen McKerrow.

The play could not have happened if it weren't for some brave young girls in younger grades.

These students stepped up to take the roles of parts that couldn't be filled by the senior class.
