TrainSmart is thrilled to have recently celebrated the graduation of our founding cohort of Screen and Media students – and what a fantastic night it was!
On Friday September 29, the graduating students from our Diploma of Screen and Media came together at Chris Huzzard Studios in Perth for the qualification’s first ever graduation ceremony.
Head of the Screen and Media faculty Priscilla Walton and TrainSmart CEO Surinder Randhawa presented each of the 13 students with their hard-earned diplomas.
As part of the ceremony, each student showcased their skills by creating a make-up look on a model under the theme of ‘avant garde hair and make-up’. The models presented their looks on the runway, after which students themselves then accompanied their models onto the catwalk to soak up the excitement.
The event also featured a professional DJ spinning some great music, which created a fun and exciting atmosphere enjoyed by the families and friends of graduating students.
And it wouldn’t have been a proper graduation ceremony without speeches and some exciting awards handed out to well deserving students.
The illustrious Student of the Year honour was awarded to Katherine Winslade, who won a two-hour photoshoot with local photographer Aaron McPolin valued at $1,200.
Other awards included the Rising Star Award, which was won by Ethan Edson, and the Perfect Attendance Award, which was jointly awarded to Taleisha Cook and Lucy Munn.
Head of faculty Priscilla Walton said the event was an enormous success.
“I’m incredibly proud of our first ever graduates of TSA College of Creative Arts (Screen and Media),” Priscilla said.
“They worked so hard and are all ready to be professional make-up artists. Most of them are already working, and some are already collaborating with different companies – we have graduates working in theatre, print media, television and short film.”
“This is a huge achievement and each of the 13 graduates are doing TSA College of Creative Arts proud.”
