Studio ’91 – Setting the bench high for schools.
On Thursday, 7th April, saw the launch of Studio ’91 at Parktown Boys’ High School.
Studio ’91 is an exciting full spectrum, entertainment industry extra mural offering now available for Parktown Boys’ High School learners wanting to explore multimedia careers. This cutting-edge hi-tech facility will not only allow students to do audio and video recordings, hold interviews and set up podcasts, but also enable students to explore the different areas of animation, sound, design, editing and music production.
Brainchild of Nathan Waywell (Matric 1991), Studio 91’ sees the establishing of a Multimedia Creative Studio at the school. The facility and its’ equipment have been funded by the 1991 group.
Parktown Boys’ High School has a proud cultural tradition and Studio ’91 is a welcome addition to the smorgasbord of cultural offerings to the school.
Studio ’91 will be the fulcrum of STEM Drama projects, which will be one of the major productions presented at the school each year.
“This facility places us at the forefront of what is offered in schools generally and provides another avenue for our boys to march to their own ‘creative drum’ – part of the school’s DNA – and achieve excellence.” Malcolm Williams, Headmaster of Parktown Boys’ High School.
The venue was packed with VIP guests, members from the media and learners. The crowd was entertained by The Parktown Boys’ High School Band, whereafter we all had to move into the hall, where a LIVE crossing was done with Darren Scott from Mix 93.8 FM. Craig Hinds from Watershed performed the chart topper, Indigo Girl, with The Johannesburg Youth Orchestra.
We wish Parktown Boys’ High School, staff, and learners’ decades of success with this amazing initiative and thank you to the Boys of ’91 for this extraordinary gesture !
