"I didn’t expect that I would enjoy it so much and I realised that I didn’t want it to end." (a Year 8 students comments on her experience of The Passion
This semester, Year 8 students again embarked on The Passion Project. The Passion Project is a Major Work conducted over the course of the semester. On
Monday 26 November we held our showcase which celebrated all that our students had achieved and allowed them a forum to share what they had learned.
There was a vast array of spectacular Major Works. These included technical works (building a personal computer, electric guitars), writing (a novel),
building projects (bedside tables, coffee tables, wall units) and choreography.
The students are to be commended for fabulous projects, their detailed research and the way in which they reflected upon their experiences. Special thanks
goes to the various mentors who encouraged our students and also to Mr Muddle who so capably guided and inspired half the cohort. Great job, everybody!

Rhythmic Gymnastics Cinematic Video:
"I did this by choreographing 4 routines with different apparatus which are ball, hoop, clubs and ribbon. I then chose the song ‘Waves' and I put different
parts from each routine to go with the music. After adding some connections, I filmed it and edited it together.
From this project, I have learnt so many new things, especially from the filming and editing aspect of it. This was something that I haven’t done before,
but it was great to learn something new. Editing was a much longer process than I anticipated it to be but I learnt so many techniques and effects
that I could incorporate into similar projects in the future. I had also never choreographed my own routines before but this was one of my favourite
aspects of the project. Overall, I learnt so many new skills and found activities that I really enjoy doing. I would love to create something similar
in the future and I was extremely happy the outcomes that I had achieved throughout the project."
