Byron Bay – Fabulous Fashion Show and Sausage Sizzle – 30 June 2023

On Friday, our Upper-Intermediate class put on a fabulous fashion show for the entire school, which was followed by our monthly Sausage Sizzle.

Teacher Adrienne devised the fashion show to get students to practise the passive voice.

 

The passive voice is used when the person or thing that does the action is not important, not known or obvious for example.

 

Glass is made from sand (we don’t know or care who made the glass)

My car was broken into last night (my car is the focus of my attention. I also don’t know who broke in)

She was run over yesterday (it’s obvious that a car did the running over)

 

Fashion provides lots of opportunity to use the passive voice because the garment is more important than anything else. Examples I spotted from the show were:

 

These items were made by disabled women in Africa

The profits from the sale of these items will be donated to charity

The hat is made from silk and rabbit fur

The dress was designed to wear to work
