School play

In 2017, students presented the original play ‘The Morphing’, written by Northcote High School teacher Harley Hefford and directed by Year 11 student Freya Viney.

The Olver Hall was transformed as the cast and crew took the audience on a journey through literary, mythological and pop culture references with a sense of humour and pathos, all the while retaining genuine humanity and exploring love, loneliness and connection in their many forms.

Performing arts alumni

A number of our students have gone on to study at highly respected performing arts academies, both in Australia and overseas.

Past student achievements include receiving the Premier’s Award for Excellence in Multicultural Arts; being shortlisted for the VCE Top Acts; directing and acting in film, television and theatre productions; curating film festivals; and success as professional musicians.
