“Creativity seems to emerge from multiple experiences, coupled with a well-supported development of personal resources, including a sense of freedom to venture beyond the known” – Loris Malaguzzi
Inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy, at Lucy’s we use the Creative Arts to provide our students with additional languages to communicate their experiences and to share their talents.
My View Photography Exhibition
My View is a national photography exhibition designed to bring together school-aged children of all abilities and harness their creativity through the language of photography. Inviting other children and schools to engage with photography is our way of opening the door to friendship and a shared understanding between children of all abilities. All photographic entries are included in the Exhibition at St Lucy’s School Creative Arts Centre and Tagliaferro Gallery. Prizes are awarded for best photo.
My View Festival has been enjoyed by our community and our last sponsor for the event was Canon. The students at St Lucy’s were all included in special photography workshops with professional photographers.
Lucias Film Festival
‘The Lucias’ has been created by St Lucy’s School, to engage our students with the language of Film Making. Inviting other children and primary schools to dialogue through film is our way of opening the door to friendship and shared understanding between children of all abilities. Short listed films are screened and awards presented to winners at a gala awards ceremony.
The Lucias Film Festival has been held the twice in recent years and we look forward to our next Festival!

“It is my belief that the creative process is the most efficient way of getting to know yourself, the world you live in and indeed the entire universe and your place in it…what is happening here at St Lucy’s will prove to be an inspiration for all of us” – Lucias Patron, Film Maker GEORGE MILLER
