With the 2021 year 12 students coming to the end of their HSC journey, the students of Forbes High School have submitted their major works for Visual Art and Industrial Technology.
Three students from the Industrial Technology class shared their major works with the Forbes Advocate.

Forbes High School's Head teacher of PDHPE and CAPA. Justin Hoy said this group of students must be commended on their stoic approach to their HSC in Visual Arts this year.

"Each student was committed to succeeding and making themselves, their School, and their families proud," Mr Hoy said.
The nine students within this Visual Arts class were: Jasmine Casey, Jessica Croucher, Natalie Emery, Isaac Neilson, Zayne Merritt, Will Grey, Claire Barbary, Emily Knights and Tatiana Dukes Rankmore.

As part of the inspiration of her work Jessica said she had witnessed her cat in its various moods and wondered what it must be thinking.
"With the fires of Christmas 2019 intriguing the cat, only to be surpassed by the cat's continual stalking of the aquarium fish.
"Her whimsical work shows that cats have imagination too and wish they could be somewhere else, from time to time, just like their owners."
