Head of Department Group 6 and Film Educator, John Carozza returned this week to QACI after leading a Workshop at Renaissance College in Hong Kong for the New Film Work Program. Over the past few years his input has been sought by the International Baccalaureate (IB) in the writing of the new film course; our Academy recognised by the broader Film Teaching Community and as a pioneering school in the subject.
John was part of a group leading almost 600 participants from around the world who are part of the global IB Community. Assisting John was a representative from IB Global Centre – The Hague, Joel Adams Curriculum Manager for Visual Arts and who co-wrote the new Film Program.
As part of an International Community of teachers, the workshop brought together Film teachers, from South Africa, China, Hong Kong, Manila and Singapore. QACI’s name in Film, as it is with all subjects at the Academy is reinforced by our presence at such events where our student work stands tall among samples from around the world and our curriculum shared among countries of great diversity and where our ideas are adopted.
In his endeavours John reflects “In our close knit QACI Community, sitting in Brisbane in Australia, it is often easy to forget how significant the work from our students and teachers is and how highly the Academy is regarded on the world stage”.
