They both received their Advanced Diploma in Performing Arts at a special ceremony in front of family and friends at Actors' Centre's unique and beautiful premises. They were awarded their diplomas by Dean Carey who not long ago graced our school with his fine presence and conducted a weekend workshop for CCMT.
Fashion shows are easy to do - Yeah right!Tuesday, 13 November 2012 13:17
It seems that fashion shows always look easy.
On the night of the ACG Senior College Fashion Show the evening was introduced by a very professional and calm Ping Ang, who took the stage as if nothing was more natural. After that came the models, looking shall we say, somewhat different than expected. They strutted up and down the catwalk in elegant and fascinating garb that made everyone look a million dollars. What never ceases to amaze is that these students, who were mucking around school that afternoon, walked the catwalk as if they had been doing this all their lives!!
