The students from Casino High School, in collaboration with Byron Bay non-for-profit One Vision Productions, have created a new video clip and song called We Can See The Lies.
According to One Vision spokesperson Ella King the Casino crew wanted to explore their shared experience of the way a lying culture negatively affected them, and their friends. ‘Their message to other young people is that it doesn’t matter how big the lie is, we can see that underneath is a hurting person and that it’s time to break our negative patterns and start telling our truths because our choice of words not only impacts other lives, but also what sort of future we want to create for ourselves.’
Ms King says the students were an inspiring and eclectic group. ‘As a team we created We Can See The Lies’, she said. ‘One of the most rewarding things about facilitating these workshops is seeing a group of students from different cultures; ages and social groups, who wouldn’t usually mingle, come together and form new friendships, as they realize their similarities and shared experiences.
‘We are so proud of this group of students who over the 10-week program grew hugely in confidence, took ownership of their project and created a supportive environment that allowed everyone the opportunity to grow and express in any way they wanted.’
