My original goal for this year was to get NCEA level 2 but I have already achieved that, so I am now working towards level 3. I am currently studying dance, drama, English, physics, chemistry and maths. In addition to that I have taken up media studies this year. I am also going to do a film studies course at university, it starts in the school holidays and runs all the way through semester 2; it is a STAR course.
The biggest thing I have done with drama last year was that I wrote and directed a short play with three people, and I ended up acting in it as well. We performed it at school and we were then invited to play it at TheatreFest. I have also made a few short films – they are quite experimental, idea based. The school helps me a lot with my passion for filming by providing equipment, support, and flexibility.
