          GLENEALY SCHOOL MID-AUTUMN FESTIVAL CELEBRATION  - OUR SCHOOL, OUR CANVAS

          “Bringing our Community Together  to Celebrate Mid Autumn Festival”

          We were thrilled to have been able to hold our Mid-Autumn Festival event and bring our families and community together to start the new academic year in a safe and socially distanced way.

          Concept note: Our School, Our Canvas

          The Mid Autumn Festival Art Installation Walkthrough was a collaboration between all staff and children, and our community as a whole. 

          Taking inspiration from a variety of galleries and events which Glenealy School staff have attended, staff and students have worked together to realise our vision; Our School, Our Canvas.


          Our School Our Canvas: inspired by Dan Flavin’s Constructed Light, the dialogue between art and architecture.

          Sound Installation

          Year 5 and 6 have worked with music sequencing software to create musical
          soundscape pieces that have been woven together to create a soundtrack for our Mid Autumn Festival.
          There is almost 40 minutes of music that has been created by the students. The works swing from the eclectic, to jazz, to rock, to vocal, to electric styles.
          The students' pieces are infused with recordings of the story of Mid Autumn
          Festival spoken in Mandarin and sporadically interspersed with Year 3 students wishing us a Happy Mid Autumn Festival.
