Our Class of 2022 graduates and current Senior School students have been making their presence known in The Arts, with a number of incredible achievements across Music, Visual Arts and Performing Arts.   

Passion, dedication and sheer resilience have seen Lucy Brown (Class of 2022) successfully audition for Top Class Dance 2023. Lucy will perform her compositional Solo ‘States of Water’ on Tuesday 7 March at the Melbourne Recital Centre as part of a series showcasing and celebrating outstanding VCE Dance students from across Victoria.  

Sophie van Bronswijk (Class of 2022) has also been selected to perform her monologue at Top Class Drama & Theatre Studies 2023. A General Excellence Scholarship graduate, Sophie received Triple Colours for Music (Year 11) and was awarded the Caulfield Grammarians’ Association Prize for Leadership, Girls Athletics Vice-Captain and Triple Academic Colours (Year 12). Sophie will perform live onstage at Malthouse Theatre on Thursday 16 March at 10.00am.  

It’s a remarkable achievement to have work selected for display at the NGV and we are delighted to share that photography by Year 12 student Grace has been selected for Top Arts 2023 at The Ian Potter Centre – National Gallery of Victoria. Top Arts 2023 showcases extraordinary works of art and folios that achieved outstanding results in VCE Art or VCE Studio Arts 2022. Grace’s work will be on show from 17 March to 23 July: https://www.ngv.vic.gov.au/learn/top-arts-2023.  

Max in Year 11 has been selected in VCAA Top Class and will perform at Melbourne Recital Centre on Wednesday 29 March with other talented musicians from across Victoria. Top Class presents 11 concerts by outstanding performing arts students who have completed VCE Music Performance, Music Investigation, Music Style and Composition, VCE VET Music (Performance), VCE Dance, VCE VET Dance, VCE Drama and Theatre Studies. 

Year 12 Kylie was awarded the 2022 Virtual School Victoria Academic Excellence Award for Music Style and Composition. Her composition ‘Pasta Disaster’ was performed at the Melbourne Recital Centre on Tuesday 12 December 2022 – an extraordinary achievement.

Year 11 student Zimo has accepted a role on National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) Teen Council for 2023. NGV Teen Councillors experience what it is like in different gallery roles, go behind the scenes and contribute to the design, coordination, and promotion of NGV programs for teens. This is an exciting learning opportunity for Zimo and an amazing achievement, with less than 10 students chosen every year. 

We look forward to sharing more news of these talented young people and wish them all the best for the future.
