The 9th Annual JLTASA Year 10 Movie Making Day was held for the first time at two different locations on the same day: St John’s Grammar School in the South and Roma Mitchell Secondary College in the North. With high demand for this event over the last few years, the JLTASA committee were pleased to be able to offer this event to even more schools and students. Thank you to Catherine at St John’s and Melissa at Roma Mitchell for generously hosting this event at their sites.
At both events, students were shown Japanese commercials for inspiration and then given several hours to create their own for a Japanese item chosen from those provided. This was an excellent opportunity for students to use their languages skills in an authentic way as they tried to persuade the audience to buy their product using innovation and entrepreneurial skills. Students also enjoyed collaborating with others who are also studying Japanese at schools across Adelaide.
Congratulations to the combined St John’s and Immanuel team for taking out the People’s Choice award and the team from Sacred Heart and Seaview who were awarded overall winners at the Southern event. Congratulations also to the team from Gleeson College and Nazareth Catholic College who took out 2nd place at the Northern event and the team from Endeavour College and Banksia Park International High School who were awarded overall winners by the judging panel.
