Mothers Day celebrations held across both campuses on 9 May were wonderful, with classrooms buzzing in a hive of activity. Students showed off their skills and talents to visiting Mums and shared in some fun and creative activities including jewellery making, ceramic painting, modelling, lego, portrait sketches, writing stories, designing and more!
The students loved the opportunity to make a fuss of our College Mums, but thought it was especially lovely to have them visit in classrooms. A lovely morning tea was provided by the College and visiting mothers enjoyed some ‘me time’ before heading back to their busy lives.
The Senior Drama class have spent hours rehearsing for their soon-to-be moderated performance of Bertolt Brecht’s famous 1944 play ‘The Caucasian Chalk Circle’. This production whilst dramatic in nature, explores the nature of humanity through humour, horror, mime, mask, music, movement, poetry and song. Many of the musical arrangements that have been included in this production have been composed by Investigator College music students, showcasing the many talents and gifts the students. So why not join the our Senior Drama students on the emotive journey that is ‘The Caucasian Chalk Circle’. One performance will be held for the general public and Year 12 moderators at 7:00pm on Friday 31 May at the Investigator College Performing Arts and Sports Centre, Bacchus Road, Victor Harbor.
Tickets can be purchased on-line through www.trybooking.com.au.

Under a canopy of soft, twinkling lights, the impeccably dressed Year 11 and 12 students from Investigator College embraced the theme of their Senior Formal – Shoot for the moon… The elegantly decorated dining room at the Currency Creek Winery Restaurant was the perfect location for the 2013 event, creating a celestial backdrop highlighting the beauty of the young people who attended.
The fashions were a highlight of the evening; for the young ladies this elicited dazzling sequins and crystals, flowing chiffons, and a palette of pastels. The gentlemen’s choices for the evening were to be admired with James Bond, grey and black suits among the most popular styles. read more
