A ‘multobitumis’, a bat-dragon, a winged fish, a moss-covered dinosaur, a minotaur, and a sentient durian – just some of the otherworldly shadow creations made by Mr. Williams’ second year art class for their end of term project. Working from their imaginations to dream up fantasy worlds, students researched, designed and constructed prosthetics to transform themselves into alien ’shapeshifters’, revealed only in shadow.
Well done to Gregory Peyton, Annette Saidléar, Eve Donnellan-Murphy, Christopher Leavey-Stewart, Euan Burke, Nunghthida Phoomchaichot and Mr Williams for an inspiring and creepy design project. To see all of the photos in full size see the flickr photo feed on the right.
There was a wonderful surprise in store for the audience at our Graduation Celebration on Monday 22 May. As parents and teachers replaced our own fantastic choir and sang a beautiful version of ‘I hope You Dance’ the students were visibly moved and genuinely surprised. The time spent in secret rehearsals paid off and proved to be the highlight of an enjoyable and nostalgic day.
Thanks to Ms Norris, Ms O’Driscoll, Ms McGlynn, Mr Maynes, Mr Fitzgerald the Sixth Year Tutors and everyone involved behind the scenes.
