BONNYRIGG High School's most creative students had their time to shine earlier this year, showcasing the fruits of their labour to the wider community.
Held on August 21, the school's annual art exhibition and Bonny Live, showcased a range of display items and performance pieces.
The art exhibition, which ran from 5pm to 7pm in the school common room, was put together by elective visual art students and their creative art teachers.
The works were created by students from year's 7 to 12.
Many artworks were displayed, including class work, assignments and the year 12 major works. A range of different messages were conveyed via the artworks, from the effects of bullying to the celebrate of family love.
Visitors were greeted with treats and were asked to vote for their favourite pieces.
The short films of the year 10 digital media class were displayed. They have been submitted to the board of studies for an advanced HSC course.
Year 12 student Taylor Sharrock displayed her body of art, titled Psychology of Life, which focuses on growth and identity.
Using a new printing technique, her artwork was full of colour.
"I've always admired other people's work, so I feel so honoured that people are actually taking the time now to admire mine," Taylor said.
Bonny Live was created by elective music students and creative arts teachers.
The annual concert was hosted by year nine students Annie Pham and Nicky Tran, and included 21 acts.
Performers from years 8-12 sang, danced and played instruments.
All the hard work of the performers and back stage crew in the lead up to the event showed on the night.
"Performing for an unfamiliar audience is always a daunting yet thrilling experience, especially when the nerves kick in," said Year 12 music student and school captain Linda Doan.
"But I gradually calm down once I'm up on stage doing what I love and enjoying the moment."
