9 Media Studies
Teacher in Charge: Miss S. Johnston
Media Studies at Year 9 is offered as an option, running for two terms. In this subject, students develop a basic understanding of a range of media, such as television and film. Students are encouraged to think about and question media issues as well, by keeping a viewing log. The approach to this option is creative, critical and practical, and involves both individual and group assessments.
Students will create short films both individually and as part of a small group using their own devices. Students can then develop further skills in Media at Years 12 and 13.
We aim to enable every student to have the course that they prefer, however, some courses have limited places or pre-requisits that may restrict the student's choice.
