AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

To finalise their studies of media, I asked my Year 9 students to create a video, introducing new students to the elective.
This is part of one draft for a video script, representing how confident the students are now to meet new challenges.

Confidence shining
New challenge means excitement
