This term our year 11 multimedia class were invited to attend a masterclass at the Adobe Offices in the heart of Sydney’s CBD. Our teacher Ms Dorman and my fellow class-mates were taken on an extensive tour of the stunning Darling Harbour offices which encompassed the entirety of the 27th floor and offered incredible 360 degree views of the city. We were introduced to several of the employees and were shown their exciting work-spaces, which included old-school gaming arcades, soft drink dispensers and mini golf! After the tour we were taken into a high-end conference room called The Nambucca Training Room. Here we were taught the software program Adobe Muse by Brett Kent (Adobe Education Leader) as well as how to make a short video with Adobe Premiere Pro. The workshop was very relaxed and fun as students utilised new information whilst eating an infinite supply of some delicious complimentary muffins! Most importantly we acquired important skills which will aid us in developing dynamic major projects for our upcoming HSC. Overall the experience was informative and fun as students fully embraced their time at the Adobe Offices.
On Monday 12th December, year 10 Elective History visited the Sydney Jewish Museum for an excursion as a part of their study of the Holocaust. The students met a holocaust survivor, Olga, aged 92, who shared her experiences at the concentration camp at Auschwitz. It was an emotional experience as she told us how Jewish people were persecuted in Europe and how she lost her family. She wanted to teach us that hate is a very strong word and we need to be more accepting of each other. We also looked at a temporary exhibition of letters that were sent to loved ones during the war and an exhibition on Anne Frank. It was a very moving experience and the students found it very emotional and educational.
