Year 10 presented a night of Stories of Strength and Power. This was the culmination of two terms work, a night of original writing and heartfelt storytelling.
Considering and comparing the words and voices of three young powerhouses – Amanda Gorman, Kae Tempest and Tiberius Larking – gave us insight into the myriad ways we can create impact and voice our beliefs and experiences with clarity, strength, and honesty. After researching a range of inspiring activists and writers who have contributed to change, we turned our attention to the issues that stir each of us personally and that move us to want to speak out.
The issues the students speak to are diverse, as are the forms of storytelling… there are many ways to make an impact!
The program provides a glimpse into the monologues devised and performed by the students.
