Over the last four weeks, the Intermediate VCAL students have taken part in an external project called ‘The Studio’ at Marcellin College alongside VCAL students from Loyola, Our Lady of Sion, St Aloysius, Santamaria and Marcellin.
The project required them in split into two groups to plan, record and produce podcasts on a topic of their choice. They also had to create a logo, stickers, a marketing plan and a budget to accompany the podcasts.

Yesterday the boys participated in the showcase day in front of students, staff and a number of parents where they talked about what went well, what could have been improved and played a ‘best bits’ audio of their podcasts.
I would like to congratulate the ‘Nature’ podcast group who came out overall winners from the 20 groups that presented. John Murphy also received an individual award for his enthusiasm and input throughout the project.
Thanks to all the Intermediate VCAL staff – Christine Haddrell, Stephanie Dekazos, Nicolle Earle, Penny Yee and Brie Ellett for all of their hard work getting the boys across the line. Thanks also to Charlie Garzia and Jo Menzies who set aside some time to be interviewed as part of the podcasts.
