9.1.2.1. This past year

9.1.2.1.1. Grade 9 display went well, as Hamish said issue with humidity haven't helped a lot of the work, collage and printed. The glue doesn't seem to hold so probably need to investigate better adhesive solutions. Same issues with IB exhibition

9.1.2.1.2. Graphics lab - in the process of getting the display sorted, been behind the ball as the room wasn't ready for the first half term, only now catching up - to be completed before the end of the academic year with help from Kel Win - if he is available.

9.1.2.1.3. IB show

9.1.2.2. What could be done next year

9.1.2.2.1. What are the steps need to make this happen?

9.1.2.2.2. would like display for graphics work in a more accessible place. The foyer on the 6th floor is far from foot traffic unless its prospective parents and students attending class.

9.1.2.2.3. work out a schedule for rotation in the lab with regards to student work going on display

9.1.2.2.4. more permanent displays of 'best' work

9.1.2.2.5. lasercut display - all the thins we can do with a lasercutter from printmaking and stencils, to reliefs and cardboard construction, sculpture etc. - feature wall, space - how 'creatives' use technology!

9.1.4. Hamish

9.1.4.1. general classroom hall display was kept on rotation with some TA assistance. Main problem was that we made the displays, so with humidity, many of the frames and displays would fall off or break, needing a lot of maintenance. A display budget would be useful, so that we can look at developing better displays outside the classrooms and in the Pods.

9.1.4.2. Grade 5 exhibition went well.

9.1.4.3. Would love to look at areas for sculpture. I'm considering making some large scale insulations with class groups, (Murals on pull down blinds and cane sculptures) so would like to look at rain proof areas that these can be displayed, hung.
