This term our club totally have had two times outside activities, two times taking activity photos for Football Club, one time taking photos for the school activity and one time taking photos of the school. During this term, our club also meet different problems, some are small, some are big. Although we think that practice is the best teacher of learning photography, we still learned some professional knowledge, otherwise, we even do not know how to use the cameras. We practiced the photography skills from different ways, whatever in topics or in the purpose and results. Sometimes we will also watch movies to see how to achieve an expected effect.

We have two parts in the club which are drawing part and model part. For the drawing part, we mainly focus on how to draw a person in Japanese style with environment. During this semester, we have learned how to draw the eyes, the head, the hair and the body. You may face some problems when practicing but our leader is really patient and tries his best to teach us the correct method of drawing. For this term， we all have a lot of work to do so that the class is very meaningful and after this term, our drawing skill has been improved a lot.
In this semester, members in the model making group all design and finish their modified model. Most of the members made gundam adn only one member made a harder one of a warship, we first finish the original version of the gundam, and then we start to design what our gundam should look like after some modification in order to show our creativity. After some very detail planning, we finally start our modification and at last, we all come out some really good, well-finished and designed, good-looking works. We all improved ourselves, and learnt many new skills during a whole semester of model making, and all of us appreciate what we have done in this meaningful experience.

In Year 10, students have begun to immerse themselves in different self-initiated programmes so as to prepare themselves for the CAS spirit in their IB years. Here are some ongoing programmes:
