From 2009 the College Arts Faculty has offered an Arts Faculty Arts Award. The Award is to recognize a Year 12 Arts student of excellence in Drama, Media, Music or the Visual Arts to receive $500 towards their Arts subject study at the College. The award provides financial support for the student to be able to undertake further studies or training in their given area outside the College or to purchase specialist Arts equipment and materials towards creating their course work.
The Award submissions from students requires individuals to submit a creative Arts CV of their time at the College and any other Arts based Community Events they have been involved in, during their most recent 18 months at the College. Once again this year the students’ applications were of an exemplary standard.
The winner of the 2013 Arts Faculty Arts Award, Taylor Cornall, is an extremely multi-talented young lady. A dedicated Media student and the 2013 College Media Captain, Taylor has been actively involved in the extra-curricular Arts life of the College and its many College and public Arts events throughout her senior years at the College.
