Gap Year for Morgan Twigg

It is always good to receive an update from a former student and recently our Community & Alumnae Relations Manager, Jane Palin caught up with Ex-Student Morgan Twigg (2018).

Morgan was a boarder with us for the last three years and after finishing Year 12 has returned to her home town of Griffith (a massive 570klms from Pott’s Point). She’s taking a gap year at home working in a winery and also conducting swimming lessons for local youngsters.

While at St Vincent’s College, Morgan especially excelled in Textiles & Design and Visual Arts. At the end of last year she was rated as one of the top Visual Arts students in the State with an Art Express nomination and acknowledgement on the HSC Distinguished Achievers’ List. Congratulations Morgan!

She currently has work on display at the unique arts precinct at Newington Armory, Sydney Olympic Park and also at the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery.

Looking back Morgan has nothing but positive feelings about her time as a boarder.

“I loved boarding for the last three years of my schooling,” Morgan explains. “There were about 24 boarders in my year level and we were all friends and it just worked so well.”

“Year 12 was stressful because of the study and the pressure but it was the best of all in many ways. That’s when you have your own room, of course. Plus, you have more responsibility and you are given more freedom to do things on your own.”

“As a boarder for three years, I gained so much independence. It is a fantastic lifestyle with lots of fun activities at the weekends.”

 In 2020, Morgan expects to be back in Sydney as she has been accepted at UTS for the Bachelor of Design (Honours) in Animation. This is a three year course that gives students with a passion for visual arts the knowledge and hands-on experience required to create animation work that really stands out.
