Great year of academic and arts achievements for Trinity
TRINITY Catholic College has a reputation for excellence in education, with a particular edge in the achievements in the arts.
This year's HSC Year 12 students were no exception, with the stand out arts student Saskia Flynn achieving remarkable results and recognition.
In her own words, Saskia describes her major works that she has created during her final year at Trinity Catholic College:
"Over the course of the HSC I took on three major works including a multimedia major project, visual arts body of work and a drama monologue and group piece.
"Each of my major works has been nominated to go into Art Express, Intech and OnStage, which are exhibitions of HSC Major works that are considered the best in the state.
"My monologue, End Game, has been selected for OnStage in Sydney. I consider the nominations and the selection a huge honour and privilege, as well as an acknowledgement of all the hard work I had put into each major work.
"My monologue is an extract from the absurdist play, End Game, by Samuel Beckett. I take on the enthralling character of Nagg, an old man who lives in a 44-gallon drum. Nagg is contrary to myself in many ways, including age and gender, which makes the character very engaging and enjoyable for me as an actor, as I love transforming into and exploring the life of someone entirely different from myself.
"The OnStage performance in February is a very exciting and a daunting prospect, but one that I hope is filled with new fantastic and dramatic individuals and fond memories."
