Step inside the inflatable Blue Grotto & immerse yourself in this sensorial underwater world! In 2011 as part of the Blue Grotto project three videos were made by students from Les Powell School in Mt Pritchard and exhibited inside the Grotto. Now, in 2013 the Grotto is back and ready for a series of film and sound recording workshops with students from 4 Western Sydney schools & one school from Orange in regional NSW.


“The hands on practical experience & the sounds interested the students.  Being part of the film making group made those students feel like they are part of something important in the school and increased their self esteem.”
Louise Melville, Assistant Principal Les Powell School
