Inaburra Pivoting to Online


Since Inaburra’s inception, the study of media has continued to be one of the key pillars of the school. A fully equipped and operational Media Centre located in the Performing Arts Centre, including a live television and recording studio, enables students to acquire skills in sound recording, video production and camera work using high-quality industry-standard equipment. Many students who have completed the IT Multimedia Technologies course for their HSC have gone on to pursue successful careers in the media industry.

Meet the Media Makers

Current students are given first-hand insight by visiting professionals at the ‘Meet the Media Makers’ event. This year (pre-COVID) it included a visit from Jamie Cohen, founder and anaging director of Clockwork Films, Sam Beckman, who has his own YouTube channel, and Will Liston, senior editor for Neil Crompton Motorsports. All these professionals are Inaburra alumni and each spoke of their journey into the industry, rapidly changing technology, and advice for students on how to find their niche in this highly competitive market.

Pivoting school events to online platforms

Inaburra’s Media Centre has also come into its own with the restrictions brought about by coronavirus, with nearly all the School’s onsite public events either cancelled or limited in numbers. Over the past few months, thanks to the ingenuity of the Stage and Screen Faculty and the benefit of wonderful facilities, we have seen many its school activities ‘pivot’ to online. Media staff, technical support staff and students have all risen to the challenge of creating events across a range of digital platforms.

From websites to Livestreams to videos

Instead of attending a subject selection information night in person, Senior students and their parents have been able to watch subject video outlines through a custom-built mini website. The TV Studio has been fully booked as teachers from all faculties record video overviews of their specialist areas.

Inaburra is now hosting its ‘Meet the Principal’ events through the Livestream platform, with registered participants able to ask questions of key staff in real time. Inaburra has also implemented the Livestream platform for online school assemblies that are projected into every classroom for students to watch in their Homegroups. There has also been the opportunity to record promotional video campaigns for charity fundraisers such as the recent Red Shield Appeal for the Salvation Army. Inaburra is currently in the process of recording a multimedia music performance in lieu of a live concert for its music ensembles from K-12.

Inaburra certainly looks forward to the time when it can welcome visitors back to the school in person. In the meantime, the school is blessed to have provision for providing alternate means of communicating with its community and student cohort through the digital space, and thinks that, post Coronavirus, there are some events that will remain on this platform rather than reverting to their previous ‘live’ format.
