Unit 3 & 4
Unit 3-4 Media is an extraordinary subject. It is relevant, engaging, multidisciplinary and demanding. The sheer scope of the subject requires students to be wildly creative, IT-fluent, aesthetically astute, interpersonally perceptive, globally aware, and internally motivated. These are the 21st Century skills that our students need to be successful in our modern world, and every film requires this. I am proud to present this year's video productions - the result of hard work by our students, under difficult circumstances.

Though her friends do not understand, Meg finds comfort in her friend Liam, who offers advice and talks to Meg in order for her to feel understood. Can Meg feel comfortable and understood enough to talk to people? Will she be able to join a group video call at the end?
