Students Excel - Wildlife Documentary

At Allegra School Coffs Harbour we understand a little extra support, flexible learning opportunities in small classes and an environment free from prejudice can make a significant impact to a student's confidence, wellbeing and overall school experience.Allegra is a safe learning space for students who find studying and socialising in mainstream schools challenging. We welcome young people struggling with anxiety, depression or trauma, with neurodiversity (on the spectrum) or learning difficulties, who have experienced bullying or who identify as part of the rainbow community.

We believe a small school, makes a big difference. Allegra offers small classes in an adult learning environment. We prioritise personal growth, respectful relationships and instilling a sense of belonging. Allegra offers an inclusive and flexible learning environment tailored to support students in Years 9 & 10. The subjects are the same, it's the delivery that is different. Our goal is to provide young people with the opportunity to realise their potential on both academic and personal levels.

We are not an easy alternative. We are an opportunity to reset, reinvent and refresh your academic and personal goals and provide a support network to assist you working towards those goals. Our students are carefully selected, those willing to commit to bettering themselves while being supportive of others are more likely to be enrolled.While Allegra has a range of support services to assist students with barriers to learning, we do not offer one-on-one behaviour intervention or high levels of behaviour modification.

As an independent school we are a member of the Association of Independent Schools of NSW and our aim is to offer all eligible young people the chance to grow and mature while undertaking their high school education in a safe and supportive environment. At Allegra we seek to include those young people whose lives may be complicated, challenging or require a particular understanding in order to achieve success.

Students Excel - Wildlife Documentary

Our students have been hard at work in the digital media studio, bringing their wildlife documentary project to life.

This semester, our budding filmmakers visited the Coffs Harbour Botanic Gardens, where they captured footage of various ecosystems and wildlife habitats. From dry sclerophyll forests to the lush wet ferny forests and the mangroves, our students were given the chance to explore and document the incredible diversity of nature right in our own backyard.

Creating wildlife documentary - Allegra School

In the digital media studio, our students were introduced to the Adobe Premiere Pro editing suite. They immersed themselves in the world of video editing, and transformed their raw footage into engaging and informative documentaries. It was a wonderful opportunity for them to acquire valuable skills and unleash their creativity.

One of the most exciting parts of this project was the narration. Our students recorded their own voices, narrating the footage they filmed at the Botanic Gardens. The documentaries they've created will not only showcase stunning visuals but also offer valuable insights into the ecosystems they explored. From Powerful owls to the Koalas  to Bush Turkeys, our students captured the essence of these creatures in their natural habitats.

Lastly, we want to give a special mention to Dara, Macy, Will, Bella, Ariana, and Charlie. These students showed exceptional dedication and creativity throughout the project, producing amazing results. We're incredibly proud of their hard work and the quality of their documentaries.

Congratulations to all our students who participated in this project!  Thank you to the Coffs Harbour City Council for making this experience possible.

Stay tuned for the release of our Allegra School wildlife documentaries on YouTube. We look forward to sharing the wonders of our local ecosystems with you all!
