During Term 1 our Annual Photo Competition has been on display in The Lilley Centre Learning Commons. Themed this year as ‘Send us a Postcard’ it was intended, as always, to be an opportunity for the boys and staff across the school to share their photo story talents in one combined display. This year added a difference in that all the photos were inserted into a template, created by Mr Russell, to appear as authentic postcards, and a message was required on each photo as part of their entry.
The Photo Competition is a great way to start each year, and adds special interest as staff and students are represented equally. Everyone can celebrate and enjoy the amazing opportunities afforded to the boys in their travels across the globe both with families and as part of school excursions, while some boys also choose to feature family pets and favourite local walks.
This year, congratulations go to Isaac in Year 12 for his winning photo of the ship The Earnslaw, in Queenstown, and runner-up Thomas in Year 9, for his entry of Melbourne laneway graffiti, while the staff winning entry goes to Mr Venables for his stunning Brisbane city skyline photo.
Thank you very much to all the staff and students who have shared their entries with us, and thanks also to Mr Kobez, our judge of four years.
