  • Joshua - Wheat-lands calenture

The School

Brisbane Water Secondary College (middle campus) is located on the Central Coast of NSW, close to Ettalong Beach. The cross-faculty teaching teams at Umina should be really helpful and supportive in bringing this project to fruition. The school has a strong performing arts focus, so who knows, these poems could end up being performed in all kinds of interesting ways - whether in person, print, or digital media.

The Project

Students participated in 3 morning workshops in a single week, which allowed them to intensively explore their ideas around The Cabinet of Lost and Found. The final project was displayed at the end of the term to the rest of the school.
