Earlier this year our Year 9 and 10 Digital Media students took part in filming and producing a music video, for award winning Fremantle artist, Lincoln MacKinnon, at a local Roleystone property.

Specialist RADM Teacher, Daniel Holliday, and a large cast and crew, spent a weekend shooting the video, which was a culmination of months of planning and development in conjunction with Lincoln MacKinnon.

The project was an integral part of our Year 10 students gaining their Certificate 2 in Creative Industries, along with their own edited version of the video.

Now the official clip of Lincoln MacKinnon’s ‘I Won’t Lie’ has been released by his record company. Follow the link below to view the video.

All the hard work by our students and RADM Specialist teacher Daniel Holliday is now on show to the world. Well done to everyone – You Rock!

for One Big Voice Concert on Friday 20th August!

Permission notes will be issued soon but before buying the tickets:

1. Please ensure you check the map in the link to find out which seats are the best to view Roleystone Community College. There are many different choirs performing together on the night and if you purchase without these recommended seat numbers you may not get to see Roleystone Community College choir as clearly.

Ticket Info - Matinee or Evening? | One Big Voice

2. We are performing in the evening from 6:45pm - 8:30pm (approx). Tickets are not required for students who are performing in the choir and transport will be arranged by the school to get them there for a rehearsal before the concert. You will be responsible for arranging transport home for your child once the concert is finished which is why we recommend you purchase a ticket to the event to make this arrangement easier. If you are unable to attend but would like your child to participate, then I suggest arranging transport home with another parent who will be attending.

3. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketek (see link).

Recently at the College a number of our Year 9 students put their tradie hard hats on and got busy building and helped erect a number of new shelters.
The four new picnic tables and seats, complete with a roof, complement a number of tables already in use in our new secondary area, near the Home Ec building.
The students also helped erect a number of seats around an existing tree, outside Block 5.
Newly Appointed Secondary AP, Mike Burns supervised the students selected to take part in the building program which is to help our students take ownership of their own learning environments, in this case to provide new amenities for secondary students and to help connect our transportable classrooms to the whole school student population.
The shelters have been fully funded by our wonderful P & C – just another example of their dedication to support this important program at the College and how pro-active they are to help the program come to fruition.
The shelters also look fantastic and blend beautifully into our bush setting.
RCC thanks the P & C for their continued support and acknowledge our students’ hard work and positive intent in their efforts to get the shelters erected.
They will be very well utilised and also provide a lot more seating all year round.

Recently RCC took delivery of a number of giant totems, in the shape of very colourful pencils. These are our statement ‘Values Pencils’, which the College will use to promote our values of Respect, Challenge and Contribute, in a very fun, bright and visual way.

Three have already been placed in the middle of the college, near Blocks 5 and 4 and the Snack Shack. Three more will be erected in the ground near the front of the administration building.

These pencils in our college colours are a lovely colourful welcome to our grounds and a clear point of interest for our students and visitors to reinforce our college values and to put those values at the forefront of peoples’ minds. The structures will also help to support our PBS focus at RCC.

RCC thanks our wonderful P & C for fully funding this initiative and helping the College utilise such a visual reinforcement of our College values of - Respect, Challenge and Contribute.

This semester our students have really enjoyed Drama classes and it has been fantastic to watch them engage in lessons, exercise their imaginations and talk with positivity and enthusiasm.

The Years 5 and 6 Drama classes have been studying the play “Boy Overboard” based on the book by Morris Gleitzman, which tells the story of a family from Afghanistan in the 1990’s and their journey to Australia as refugees.
Our students explored the themes of hope, familial bonds, courage and developed empathy and insight into individual lives in a war torn land.

The Year 3 and 4 classes have delved into the text “Herb the Vegetarian Dragon.” The students recreated scenes and it has been a pleasure to watch them think critically about characters and develop empathy and understanding of other’s perspectives.

Years 1 and 2 have explored “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Book” which follows a young boy travelling through a series of fractured fairy tales. These students had to put their imaginations and problem solving skills to work.

For many of the children, who have never studied drama previously, they should be very proud of their efforts this semester. A number of them have also discovered a new appreciation and aptitude for performance.

Bring on Semester 2 – and more Drama!
