Kicking off a busy Term on The Arts calendar are the Synthesis and Fusion Exhibitions, and with almost a full year’s worth of anticipation for the events, they definitely did not disappoint.
Showcasing work from the Design and Technology, Visual Art and Hospitality Departments, each Exhibition celebrated the hard work and sheer talent displayed by our students in 2019.
Suitably themed Kaleidoscope, Synthesis premiered first presenting work from students in Pre-Primary to Year 12.
Duncraig Head of The Arts Mrs Pippa Travaglione said this year’s Exhibition was a treat for creative minds.
“This year’s Synthesis Exhibition and Film Festival, opened by Dr George Karpathakis from Edith Cowan University, was a celebration of the colourful, inspired work produced by St Stephen’s Primary and Secondary students,” Mrs Travaglione said.
“The atmosphere created by the live music, the delicious food and the students’ work displayed in a professional exhibition setting was well-received by all who attended.”
As a special bonus, guests at the Opening Night also viewed the St Stephen’s School Dance Company’s inaugural performance, which highlighted the group’s synergy and skill.
“The St Stephen’s School Dance Company performed for the very first time prior to the screening of yet another year’s collection of outstanding student films, including entries from schools all over the City of Joondalup,” Mrs Travaglione said.
Fusion then continued to wow audiences as the Tech Hub brimmed with colourful creations from Kindy to Year 12 students.
Carramar’s Head of The Arts Mrs Lesley Nation said the combination of talent from different specialties across the School was the secret to Fusion’s success.
“This year we again transformed the Tech Hub into an Exhibition that embodied the notion of Fusion,” Mrs Nation said.
“Merging and celebrating the creative talents shown through paint, food, textile, wood, metal and more, teachers and students have worked tirelessly over the year to ensure the exhibition is a visual (and actual) feast for the senses.”
