Fan Fiction
What is Fan Fiction? Where can it be published? What's
it like being a real writer? These questions were the basis
of a Fan Fiction and Writing Workshop with published
author, Nansi Kunze (author of successful novels including
'Mishaps', 'Dangerously Placed' and 'Kill the Music') and
Drouin Library Team Member Michelle Lewry, who writes
picture books and young adult fiction in her time away from
the Library.

Nansi offered some great tips for young writers, dispelling
myths about the writing profession, explaining that
everyone's perspective is different and everyone has a story
to tell.
Michelle wrapped up the session by exploring fan fiction,
focussing on authors familiar to the student audience.

“After doing the writing workshop I learned quite a lot to do
with the publishing process and how fan fiction is a great
way to improve writing. It has inspired me to work harder
with my own writing and therefore was a great experience
that I would definitely recommend.” - Zoe

'MINUS 18' Presentation
What a fantastic opportunity the Year 10
students had when the Minus 18 group
came to DSC to present about LGBTIQ.
It was a very fitting topic for Year 10
students considering they are doing
Respectful, Resilient Relationships in their
Learning Group sessions. Seb and Miller
presented a very informative presentation
about the individuality of Gender, Sex and
Sexuality. Many of the myths surrounding
gender and sex were discussed and
students and teachers left the presentation
feeling a lot more informed about the
topic. The message put out was that
everyone is an individual, never assume
who they might be. A special thank you
goes to Charlie and Sarah for organising
the presentation and raising the funds to
make it possible.

From the Food Studies Team...
It’s National Nutrition Week!

This year’s theme is ‘Try for 5!’ which is about
encouraging Australians to consume 5 serves of
vegetables each day. One ‘serve’ is ½ cup of green
or orange vegetables, 1 cup of leafy salad, ½ cup
sweetcorn, ½ medium potato or 1 tomato.

Only 4% of Australians are eating enough serves of
vegetables each day. Children aged between 2-18 are
averaging only 1.8 serves per day! Many studies have
shown poor diet is linked to negative mental health
and greater risk of depression and anxiety, as well as
negatively impacting memory and learning. Not at all
helpful for good learning at DSC!

Trying to include 5 serves of vegetables in your diet
everyday will lead to improved mood, reduced risk of
depression and long term memory sharpness through the
ageing process.

We made big batches of a Valuable Vegetable Slice and
Choc Orange Zucchini Cake for DSC staff and students
this week which were enjoyed by all.

We’ve also been busy making Ploughman’s Lunches and
Cheese Tarts, which all include vegetables in different
ways. How could you increase the number of vegetables
you eat everyday? Try a small side salad with an omelette
for breakfast, include some grated vegetables in a
Bolognese sauce, slice some leftover vegetables finely,
put them onto a square of puff pastry (or English muffin)
with some tomato passata, cover in cheese and bake
until golden brown, or hide them in cakes or muffins for a
sweet treat.

Challenge yourself to ‘Try for 5!’ over the coming weeks.
If you need recipe inspiration or ideas, check out the website, or come and ask
one of the Foods team for our favourites.

Special Effects
Makeup Workshop
On 15 October, Carly Goodwin, a qualified hairdresser and makeup artist,
attended the Year 11 and 10 Media classes to teach the students how to
apply SFX (special effects) makeup on the skin. Carly taught our students
about liquid latex and they spent the lesson creating fake wounds and
discussed why we use makeup under professional lighting.

Carly helped students construct realistic wounds and scars. We discussed how
to replicate these with products at home. We considered colours for bruising
and how to perfect skin for photos and filming. Students also got to have
their wounds photographed under lighting to see their work in action, they all
looked AMAZING!

This workshop is going to help students construct their horror films in Year
11 Media. In Year 10 Media we are going to take these skills and use them
while constructing our altered genre movie posters.

If you are interested in seeing the products of our workshops and anything
else we do in Media you can follow our Instagram page @mediaclass.10

Students need to be supported at home with a routine of regular reading. Choose a time that regularly suits for the reading
routine – it might be straight after school, after dinner, reading in bed or another time. The target for each semester is to read
at least three books and successfully complete quizzes on each.
Progress can be tracked at using the student’s username and password for Moodle.

STORIES            MAKE          US: conversation with Morris Gleitzman
The previous edition of the DSCN introduced Morris Gleitzman as
the Australian Children’s Laureate.
In addition to offering positive situations in a world where media
frequently concentrates on the negative aspects of society,
Gleitzman contends that reading helps children develop crucial
stages in their personal and interpersonal development. Reading
provides a much bigger window for alternative behaviours, ways of
thinking and for developing empathy.
“A young main character, for example, confronted by a problem
bigger and more threatening than any they’ve faced before. To
solve or survive the problem, the character must develop skills and
qualities beyond their previous experience or homework. They must
think bravely and honestly about themselves and the problem. They
must hone their research skills to better understand what they’re up
against. Big problems require teamwork, so the character needs
to form friendships and alliances. Understanding enemies is a
help too. All of which requires development of interpersonal skills,
in particular empathy. Creative thinking is a must because the
young character needs to develop problem-solving strategies, and
resilience is essential because big problems never get solved first
time round…”

Mr Hasley and Ms Watson-Davie took the VCE
Year 11 and 12 Art and VCE Studio Arts classes
to the acclaimed MoMA (Museum of Modern
Art New York) exhibition at the National Gallery
of Victoria. The exhibition included some of the
museum’s most famous works by: Pablo Picasso,
Frida Kahlo, Roy Lichtenstein, Marcel Duchamp,
Rene Magritte and Andy Warhol.

The students also had the opportunity to hear a
lecture and to engage with the NGV’s permanent
collection. They learnt more about the artists they
have studied and the mysteries that some of the
artworks hold. Students commented they had a
fantastic time seeing artworks they had only seen
in books and discovering why they were made.
