As part of the Year 8 current Encounter study involving Migration and Urbanisation, students visited the Southbank precinct of the city in order to study how urbanisation has affected Melbourne.
Students walked around the area completing research tasks on the liveability of the Southbank and north banks of the Yarra River.
They also had the opportunity to visit the Immigration Museum, and completed the Sandridge Bridge Immigration Walk to gather information for the assessment portfolio they are currently completing in class.
The highlight of the day was to place an old Braemar lock on the walk bridge across the Yarra.
Many of the students took the opportunity to attach Anzac tributes to their locks for the 100 year Anzac celebration.
The day was well supported by Year 8 parents, some with their own immigration stories that they shared with students.
