In Focus

The impact of the Media!

Year 4 students have been inquiring into how media informs and influences our lives. Our recent trip to Channel 7 and ACMI was an amazing experience for all participants. Students were lead on an exploration of different aspects of the Channel 7 studios by John Deeks. These studios are the hub of the 7 network in Australia. We were given the opportunity to see behind the scenes, work the control room and become television personalities for the day.A highlight for the students was learning that even boys have to wear make-up when on television!

After enjoying lunch at Federation Square, we progressed to our final destination ACMI. ACMI’s stunning permanent gallery Screen Worlds charts the history and future directions of the moving image in all its forms – film, television, video games and digital culture.
