Canberra Inquiry

This week the boys were given the task of researching an aspect of our Canberra Excursion with the goal of preparing a one page information sheet to share back to the class and build our collective knowledge of Canberra before we leave.

We discussed the importance of design when laying out information and the requirements of an informative text, including the techniques used to draw the viewer in.

There was a lot to be learnt and some amazing observations made! We’re all excited about what lies ahead as we begin our journey to Canberra.

Young Leaders Day 2014

Young Leaders Day is on Monday the 31st of March. The school leaders get to listen to speeches and do fun activities during this excursion into the city. Ms Rusten will be taking the boys to the city and their use of transport will be a taxi. They will leave from school at 8:00am and be back at school by 3:30pm. The leaders will learn a lot from this and it will be great to see what they bring back to share with the rest of the class.
