Year 8 have had a busy semester, completing their unit on “The Beauty of Novels” via online learning and then starting with our “Masters of Persuasion – The Media and Advertising” unit shortly after returning to school.

After learning about persuasive devices, target audiences, and the visual and sound techniques used by advertisers, students have been enthusiastically constructing their own short commercials!
