Media Arts

The Media Arts Program aims to give students the skills to be informed consumers and users of digital communication in all its forms. Over their 7 years at Pakenham Springs, students will engage in learning about film, photography, radio, print media, internet and web use, advertising, working as a crew, being in front and behind the camera lens, planning for productions through script writing and story boarding, identifying sources of information and recognising media manipulations and fake news, cyber safety and protocols, copy rights and how First Nations People and other cultures are portrayed in the digital sphere.  Students will be given many opportunities to respond to digital works both created by themselves and others. The Media Arts program encourages and challenges students to express themselves and be confident and informed in sharing their thoughts and opinions through digital technology.

The Japanese Room is a vibrant space where junior students can learn about amazing people, places and things in far-away lands. They will experience the Japanese culture through language, art, music, dance, games, sports and immersive experiences. From bullet trains and Hiragana, to Kusama dot pumpkins and Pocky, the learning opportunities are endlessly intriguing, engaging and fun. The Japanese program challenges students, activates their minds in a variety of ways and supports their Literacy skills and cultural understanding in all areas.
