Hoxton Park High School is a comprehensive, co-educational high school that welcomes and accommodates students from different backgrounds and with different learning needs. The school has adopted the four core values of care, respect, participation and excellence. The curriculum caters for all students through a broad range of subjects including academic courses, vocational education (VET) in Hospitality, Retail, Information Technology, Primary Industries and Metal and Engineering, school based apprenticeships and traineeships (SBAT) and TAFE courses. Gifted and Talented students are catered for within the Self-Select class program and the provision of a differentiated curriculum, catering for all learners.
The school is part of ABCN with strong links with AMEX and Western Sydney University. The school has a comprehensive student leadership and welfare program which includes strong links with partner primary schools. The school is part of the Positive Behaviour for Success. Students excel academically, in the arts, citizenship and sporting arenas.
The exhibition “Texture Quality” showcases the diverse ability of students at Hoxton Park High School. The varied talent of our students is reflected in their creative endeavours, particularly within the Creative & Performing Arts and LOTE faculty.
The exhibition features artworks produced during an enrichment workshop where “texture” was the focus. Our junior students (years 7 and 8) created and printed collagraphs inspired by nature. Inspired by the broad possibilities of the theme, the students produced many drawings which demonstrate tactile qualities. Many students also experimented with textured drawings on a variety of materials including old atlas maps.
The stage 5 students (years 9 and 10) focused on painting, drawing and collage. Mixed media pieces began to emerge as students began to weave the strips, developing an aesthetic using shredded paper. Students were encouraged to explore ‘texture’ while experimenting with materials and techniques in rendering the surface quality.
During the exhibition opening, several short films will be screened including the Award winning Japanese film “I wish it was” which won first place for best acting (Video Matsuri, Japan Foundation.) There will be animated stills by the Photographic and Digital Media students and ‘film music’ created by Music students to accompany a student film. As part of the opening, the Senior Music students will perform and provide some improvisations during the evening.
