This term our junior school students are investigating a History unit, exploring Community Histories through the lens of personal history, the history of our school, and how our community has changed over time.
The unit began with an ‘Old School’ day for the Junior students to immerse themselves in the various concepts of history.
It was such a delight to see everyone in full flight and getting in the spirit of the day as the students and staff dressed up to launch their 'topic' focus for the term: The Good Ol' Days.
Throughout the day the students rotated through a series of activities, from a calligraphy writing workshop, to an artefacts exhibition, to an olden games session; the students had such a wonderful and rich day of learning.
The teachers have clearly set the learning tone and focus for the weeks to follow.
