Amazing Discovery Culture Festival

Posted: December 11, 2015

This year’s Discovery Culture Festival was a true celebration of art, culture and literature. From the colourful opening festival parade to the student music performances and exciting electives, all students were able to explore and experience all that was on offer. African Drumming & Stories, Dragon Dancing, Stage Fighting, parkour, cake decorating, customs design, book quizzes and art exhibitions were all part of this year’s week long festival.

This year’s photography competition, as part of the festival, was opened up to all year groups with wonderful entries received from students of all ages. MooFish Restaurant (Castelo Concepts) and HighJump Photography are our very generous photo competition sponsors with the following winners and prizes:

Juniors (Y1-5): Rhoda Ip, Y4, “The Bubble Streak” wins a Fuji Mini25 instant print camera
Middle (Y6-9): Aria Desloge, Y7, “Lantern Festival Silhouette” wins a GoPro Hero 4 camera
Senior (Y10-13): Simran Sawhney, Y13, “The Light of the Taj” wins a GoPro Hero4 camera and a one-on-one workshop with photographer Claire Fraser of HighJump Photography.
