St. John's December Open House, which took place yesterday, Monday 13th December 2010, attracted large numbers of guests -- both parents and families of our current students, but also a substantial number of visitors, prospective families, and friends from other schools and regional parishes. The festive atmosphere of the evening provided the ideal opportunity for everyone present to view some of the work St. John's students have produced over the current Semester 1 of our school year, as well as visit with teachers and Academy staff.
Exhibits of student work ranged from models of cathedrals and the Bastille made as part of history classes; drawings, paintings, sculptures and even M.C. Escher-style creations from various art classes; photography galleries including equipment from the Academy's dark room and the startlingly clear results of students' own pin-hole box camera creations; journals and sketch books; dioramas and charts from English, history, religion; science exhibits; and much more.
We're delighted to have had such a good turnout, and the ability to showcase the immense talents and creativity of our student body here at St. John's. And, of course, we're particularly proud of our students for all their hard work and diligence in ensuring that the evening was as successful as it was.
