Joondalup Weekender - - News -

STU­DENTS’ cre­ativ­ity will be on show at this year’s Syn­the­sis Ex­hi­bi­tion and Film Fes­ti­val at St Stephen’s School Dun­craig.

“Our stu­dents have been work­ing in stu­dios, edit­ing rooms and work­shops all year to show­case the very best of their work to date,” prin­ci­pal Donella Beare said.

“The Syn­the­sis Ex­hi­bi­tion and Film Fes­ti­val is one of our premier events of the year and I am con­sis­tently blown away by the tal­ent on show.”

Now in its sixth year, the show will fea­ture art, me­dia, graphic de­sign, tex­tiles, fur­ni­ture and au­to­mo­tive en­gi­neer­ing, great food and per­for­mances.

Guests will also be en­ter­tained by en­tries in the Syn­the­sis Film Fes­ti­val, run in con­junc­tion with ECU and the City of Joon­dalup, where sec­ondary stu­dents in the City en­ter short film works, with prizes up for grabs.

The film fes­ti­val be­gan in 2016 and has added a new cat­e­gory this year for pri­mary stu­dents in years 4 to 6 to en­ter one-minute films.

The films will be screened in the the­atre from 6.45pm on open­ing night, Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 17.

The theme for this year’s ex­hi­bi­tion – ‘From Lit­tle Things…’ – was in­spired by a project pri­mary and sec­ondary stu­dents have been col­lab­o­rat­ing on with artist Stephen Pea­cock.

A group of year 5 and 10 stu­dents worked with Pea­cock on the de­sign of a mu­ral to be painted on a wall of the arts build­ing.

Once fi­nalised, the group at­tended reg­u­lar ses­sions to paint the de­sign.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will run from Oc­to­ber 18 to 24 and be open 8am to 4pm on week­days.
