Here are some takes from the stage fighting workshop run by Josh, the Drama Teacher, and the stage make-up workshop, run by Ruth, the Science Teacher, during Skills Week this year.
The annual Alia Arts Night was locked down this year. Teachers from Art, Music, Drama and Media uploaded student work to Google Classroom, and invited students to take their families on a virtual tour of the work produced by Alia students. A small collection of the work is provided here.
