On 27 November Year 8 students visited the Old Parliament House as part of their Civics and Citizenship unit.
On Thursday 23 November, a joint excursion was held with students from Merici College and Canberra Girls Grammar. At the excursion, the students participated in different sessions to learn more about Chinese culture. The various sessions are Taichi, making dumpling, playing Guzheng (an ancient Chinese instrument) and dressing up in Qipao (a signature Chinese dress) and also did a simple dramatization of Mulan in ancient Chinese costumes.
The Urban Challenge was a once in a lifetime experience. Amidst selfies with dogs and never-ending barbeque line-ups Year 9 had heaps of fun but also learnt about the importance of teamwork and co-operation. Each team role was challenging in its own way and everyone had to work together to reach each day’s goals. It also taught us how to work in a group with people that we did not necessarily know.
