The Year 6 students have been enjoying a great opportunity not only to explore the elements of photography, but to communicate to others a true story of themselves. This is directly to combat how perception of self can depend on the opinions of others when posted online, and how responses can particularly affect self-esteem and body image. The students are indeed fortunate to be exploring these ideas.
As a conclusion to these lessons, the final self-portraits will be exhibited in the Colebrook Wing outside the Year 6 classrooms from Wednesday 19 October in Week 3 of Term 4. We warmly welcome you to view the portraits after 3.30pm on any day and if possible, speak with the photographers themselves about their intentions and messages.
