We put together this video to show everyone what a great year it has been for the Academy. We are so proud of what our students, staff and everyone involved in the Academy was able to achieve this year.

Now for a good break and to then onwards to do the same in 2020!

Our Students making inroads!

Georgie van Heerden, one of our third year students, interned at local hotshop for all things digital, MakeReign. Word has it that she did so well she was offered a job, which always makes us incredibly happy to hear!

She was also featured on their blog. You can check that out here.

Well done Georgie! It’s so special to see our multimedia students do well.
