Rosebank Celebrates its Creative Spirit

Creativity was abound at Rosebank College during the annual Festival of the Creative Spirit. Students from Year 7 – Year 10 were involved in the interdisciplinary, and innovative program, which provided them the opportunity to develop their passions by stepping beyond the four walls of the classroom through designing rich academic projects.

Festival organiser and the College’s Coordinator of Innovation and Learning, Mr Jake Plaskett, said “every student was enabled to explore and experiment with critical and creative thinking, problem-solving, communication and aesthetic awareness through the creation of authentic projects and experiences”.

Students selected from 28 unique, interdisciplinary projects ranging from Sculptures by the Bay, Game of Thrones, Feeding the Hungry to GPSpionage and Room Escape.

The week culminated with an exhibition of the student’s projects.

Samantha Saliba is one step closer to achieving her dream career, having just received her Certificate 3 in Early Childhood Education and Care. The Year 12 student completed this as part of the College’s School-Based Traineeship Program which has seen Samantha simultaneously gain her qualification, continue with her HSC studies and gain industry experience at Star Academy Kids Learning Centre.

“I have always loved childcare and one day hope to own a family day care business,” said Samantha. The balancing act has had its challenges, but the rewards have been well worth it.

“Early completion of the course has also allowed Samantha more time to focus on her other HSC subjects. “I feel less pressure with my other classes as I now have more time to focus on these,” said Samantha.
