Media subjects at Norwood Morialta High School focus on Film and Visual Effects, utilising specialist audio/video recording equipment and facilities, including iMac studios.
Students develop skills and knowledge through learning about a range of genres, theories, practices, cultures and historical styles. Our Drama students develop an appreciation for live theatre through regularly attending productions. They also perform in public Drama productions from Year 10 – 12. These are staged on the Senior Campus in the outstanding Peter Lang Performing Arts Centre.
In Stage 1 and 2, students can also study Event Management, which involves students developing skills and knowledge in the development and creation of events and productions.
Music is offered as a full year subject from years 8 to 12. Year 8 students can choose to study the subject for a semester, to gain experience in Music, or extend their skills in a full-year course. Students may choose from a variety of instruments including woodwind, electric bass and piano.
