Lights...Camera...Action!

Image

From on-camera interviews to 7-minute shorts, film and video production highlights the collaboration, creativity, commitment, and innovative thinking that makes an education at Mulgrave so special.

Starting with co-curricular programmes in Junior School, students learn the fundamentals of story structure, character development, and visual storytelling through short skits. Middle School students further develop their technical skills through the Young Moviemakers LEAP elective and eventually take those skills into the production of short films in a Grade 10 elective course. Diploma Programme Film (G11 and 12) allows students to study the history and theory behind filmmaking in addition to honing their technical skills and expertise in selected production roles.

Many Mulgrave alumni have gone on to pursue film, producing award-winning short films, working on local productions, and studying at prestigious institutions such as Ryerson, Chapman, and NYU.

All students in Grades 7-12 can get in on the action with the Mulgrave-hosted ZOOM 48-Hour Film Festival, now in its 19th year. Recognised as one of the most popular student film competitions in the province, ZOOM consistently garners more than 100 entries every year from across BC. Last year, the festival awarded over $130,000 in prizes including equipment, scholarships, and work experience opportunities thanks to the generous support of sponsors like Vancouver Film School, Young Moviemakers, Capilano University, and New Image College.

The deadline to register for ZOOM is Tuesday, October 22nd, so be sure to check out all the details here.

Athletics Round-Up

Mulgrave's mighty Titans have been hard at work the past few weeks on the courts, turf, and trails.

Volleyball, soccer and cross-country are the main sports in which our students compete during the fall season, all providing great opportunities to improve technical skills as well as teamwork, game strategy, and perseverance.

Game and competition updates are posted regularly on our Athletics News page, which also features a calendar of upcoming events.

A special shout out to our Upper School Athletes of the Month for September: Vania R (G12) - Varsity Girls Volleyball, Mackenzie C (G12) - Varsity Boys Soccer, Mia R (G9) - Varsity Girls Volleyball, and Mitchell D (G8) - Junior Varsity Boys Soccer.

Exploring Voice

Image

In Grade 6 Performing Arts, students have been exploring different ways to use their voice, experimenting with volume, pitch, pace, rhythm, inflection, tone, and repetition. 

As culmination of this work, classes were excited to perform three Roald Dahl poems for our Junior School assembly using these vocal elements, as well as expressive gestures and movements. The PigsDown Vith Children!, and Veruca Salt, The Little Brute! were all big hits with the audience. Students reflected that it was a fun experience to collaborate to create the vocal elements and actions for their stanza.

Photos of the performance are available here (password: Mulgrave)

'Admissions Season' is in full swing! With deadlines for application approaching as quickly as November 1st for Kindergarten, you may have noticed more visitors in the hallways than usual.

This week we're hosting two Open Houses, offering a few hundred families more information on our educational programme, as well as what it's like to be a Mulgrave student or parent. Another round of events will take place in November. If you would like to volunteer, please email Rhonda Altman.

Many thanks to the student and parent volunteers who help with these events; prospective families often cite these conversations as critical in their decision to apply to Mulgrave.
