An 'Artzistic' Victory for the Special Events and Media Team


The Special Events and Media Team is known for many of their contributions both inside and outside the College. From the filming of the new school song to organising and running live streams for all of the school’s assemblies, it’s safe to say that we all do a lot for Good Samaritan.

For the past four months, the Special Events and Media Team worked on a project for CASPA’s Battle of the Artz, an annual video competition for various schools to compete in.

From Arts Schools to other Catholic Schools, various entries were submitted, judged and voted for. Out of all of the entries there could only be one overall winner...

...and it was us!

On Friday, the 27th of September, all the members from the Special Events and Media Team (even the graduated Year 12's!) were told that we had done it… that we had managed to come out on top and win the Battle of the Artz for 2019.

This is our third victory, adding to the already astounding record the Media Team, and College have when it comes to extra-curricular competition.

Although we were defeated by Freeman Catholic College last year, this did not deter us. We won the competition before in 2016 and 2017, and it all comes down to the hard work year after year.

It is an understatement to say that we were excited… all of us were ecstatic that our film got voted the ‘Overall Winner’ of the competition!

We would also like to congratulate All Hallows Five Dock for their own victory in the ‘People’s Choice’ Award!
