Dapto High School, NSW
The Disappearing, 2015
Dapto High School is a co-educational comprehensive high school. The school enjoys a secluded setting, protected from the local urban development by the south coast rail line and picturesque Mullet Creek.
Thanks to a generous donation from a local Illawarra resident, The Red Room Company is running a special series of workshops at Dapto High School throughout 2015.
The first workshop featured renowned poet Lorna Munro, who presented two workshops to over a thousand students from the school. Lorna guided students from Years 7-11 in writing activities inspired by The Disappearing learning resource.
The second workshop was presented by poet and artist Lilly Blue, again through activities about place and memory guided by The Disappearing learning resource.
