Year 9 City Week

Our Year 9 students had a hectic but productive City Week recently, travelling to Melbourne for a range of Curriculum based activities.

The undertook a complex Cultural Emersion Experience where they had two days to develop, explain, interpret, apply, shift perspective, empathise and assess a selected field or area of interest and focus during City Week

Students worked in small groups to complete this task and worked together to decide how they might present their information.

It was a big week, but everyone gained a lot from the experience.
