On Thursday 20 July the Yr 11 Modern History class attended an excursion to The Shrine, in St Kilda Rd, Melbourne. Students learned about the Vietnam War and met a returned Australian serviceman who discussed his experience in the war. We were able to view some of the uniform and artefacts used by Australian soldiers at the time. Thank you to Ms Lau for also attending.
A great learning experience was had by all.

As part of their Unit on Ancient History, Year 7 students attended an excursion to the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre at the Melbourne Museum. Students were able to interact with ancient artefacts and explore the exhibits while comparing and contrasting historical sources and analysing different perspectives of people in the ancient past. The excursion also included access to the Milarri Garden and enabled students to be immersed in the rich and diverse cultures of Australia’s First Nations People. Students gained a greater understanding of the curriculum and developed the skills required to complete their AT.
A big thank you to all the Integrated Studies teachers for their support and assistance, especially Mr Ben Copper who organised this event.
Mr Mark Micallef – Humanities Teacher
