Year 9 started the term looking at the weird and wonderful world of Tim Burton, where they watched and analysed “Edward Scissorhands” and “Vincent”.

They are now working their way through the digital text medium, focusing on cultural assumptions, values, and struggles in today’s society.

They are working away, creating their very own digital texts aiming to inform people about a modern cultural issue and inspire change. Some popular topics have been the Black Lives Matter movement, focusing on the U.S. and the treatment of Indigenous Australians, casual racism, and LGBTQIIA+ culture.

Congratulations to the winners of our “Let’s Get Burtonesque” competition – James Copeland and Meisha Crawford!
