Welcome to Term 1, 2016. This term's focus is 'The Ripple Effect' . . .


The Ripple Effect- WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR YOU?

By using our connections we are able to further understand ourselves and to establish our personal roles within a community. Very importantly through our connections we have the ability to make a positive difference. In today's digitally connected world, networks spread beyond immediate family, school and local community. Social responsibility involves communicating our opinions, ideas, talents and passions to a wider audience; from local, to national and even global.

SCHOOL WIDE FOCUS - CONNECTIONS
This term, the whole school will focus their learning on the theme of 'connections'. Year 7 & 8 students will explore the idea of connections through learning activities and case studies centered around 'social responsibilities' and how successful networks operate. Students will be collaborating and creating websites to provide evidence their learning.
  

The learning for the term will conclude with a showcase of learning (The Ripple Effect: Presentations) in week 10.

Learning around 'Cool Schools' is incorporated through scheduled activities throughout the term and all electronic learning is embedded with sound digital citizenship.

KEY COMPETENCY
Our Key Competency focus for Term 1 is 'Relating to Others', but the student-centered learning planned will require students to draw on all of the Key Competencies; Managing Self, Using Language, Symbols and Texts, Thinking, and Participating and Contributing.

OTHER EVENTS THIS TERM
During the term all students will be attending swimming sessions 'Swim Magic'  in weeks 2 and 3. This is a new initiative of a block timetabling and a solid preparation for Education Outside the Classroom for both year 7 and year 8 students.

Please refer to the website calendar for a list of other sporting events for the term.


Mrs Brickland, Mr Hansen, Miss Corser, Mr Hudson, Mr Morris-Adams, and
