Year 8 Visual Art

Posted by Thomas More College on 15 June 2020
Year 8 Visual Art
Painting is always an exciting part of any Visual Art course. The chance to create colour and apply it to your own composition using paint is a traditional staple to learning and experiencing art making. 

Year 8 Visual Art students had their opportunity to use acrylic paints interrupted due to the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Rather than changing the course entirely and starting a new project, this task was reimagined and adapted to embrace the traditional painting elements but through an online medium, as part of the Connected Learning Model.

Year 8 VA students completed their Thomas Fedro painting task by having it realized as a public art display, in the form of a collaged paste up on the school grounds.

After watching the time lapse video of the installation together, the students were able to view their work on display and had the opportunity to share and celebrate their work with Mr Tavella, who absolutely loves it!

It is wonderful to be able to have student learning on display.

They do not need to be new but please ensure if you are going to donate that the items are still in good condition.

A message to our Students from your Principal

Posted by Thomas More College on 31 March 2020

A message to our Students from your Principal

Good afternoon students,

I hope you are going ok during this interesting time.

As the majority of you are away this week, I wanted to touch base with you as your Principal to let you know that we miss all of you, and that we want and need to continue to stay connected with you as you people throughout the rest of this term, and also through whatever next term throw at us.  Just because some of you may not be here, it does not meant that this connection is not important; it perhaps more important now more than ever. 

Very shortly we will send to you and your families specific information about how we will do this holistically.  As a brief introduction though, The Thomas More Connected Learning Model aims to ensure that we stay connected as a Community.  It connects the key elements of learning, wellbeing and spirituality by embracing technology.  It creates both collaborative and personal learning experiences online; however, we are not just going online, we are remaining connected.

I want to also show you how we are asking that all of you connect with us starting tomorrow.  It's important, starting tomorrow and continuing until Friday, and then starting again next term, that you follow a routine and be up and ready to start this vital connection activity.  Please follow the video link here.

Please remember that you matter to us, and you matter absolutely. 

We look forward to you staying connected with us this week, and as Term 2 starts.

Take Care,

Mr Tavella
