Abbotsleigh all a-Glow
The rain could not stop our celebration of learning on Wednesday evening for our annual GLOW event. Once again, we were treated to an evening of music, performance, activities and displays of the outstanding work from our girls across all disciplines and campuses. It is always so inspiring to see creativity expressed through each student’s contribution.
The ELC and Junior School created wonderful installations that incorporated light. So many highlighting the responsibility we have to our natural environment, demonstrating an understanding of the role we have as consumers and producers of waste and the impact on the animals and oceans. Other projects showcased learning about history and we continue to see a growth in the STEAM programs with board game designs and coding to create tamagotchis.
We were entertained by some enchanting musical performances from our Senior and Junior School bands, string and vocal ensembles. Girls had created pixel patterns, animations and danced in the silent disco. The ARTEMIS Robotics group showcased this year’s climbing robot, Physical and Sports Sciences students ran glow in the dark games in the Old Gym and Photographic and Digital Media students ran a 'learn to light paint' workshop on the tennis courts. So many of our activities were organised and conducted by the girls.
Through the installations and displays we remembered those who have struggled for Indigenous rights and freedoms in Australia and were inspired by women of faith. The arts were on display with e-textile fashion, light up garden installations, surrealist digital art, German storytelling and light photography.
Our Senior School girls representing each of the service clubs provided a range of food and drinks to warm us up on a cold winter evening and raised funds to support their chosen cause. Thank you for joining us to share in this celebration of learning.
