On Tuesday our Year 6 students hosted the very first Learning and Growing Student Expo as a celebration of their learning. Over the past two terms, Year 6 have worked hard to contextualise the Australian Curriculum to our local, rural and agricultural context. They have achieved this through developing a strong knowledge in STEM – Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics as well as HASS – History and Social Science.
On the day our Year 6 Students – Mini Experts, joined with Industry Partners – local businesses to educate students from visiting schools on elements of food production and the role the Lockyer Valley plays in producing quality foods. Visiting schools included St John Vianney’s - Manly, St Joseph’s – Kangaroo Point, St Brigid’s – Rosewood, St Mary’s – Laidley along with our Year 5 students totalling over 350 students. Feedback received by teachers, students and Industry Partners has been very positive with the day being described as fantastic, highly
informative and engaging. Many of the visiting teachers also commented on how much they learnt too. Well done Miss Warskitt, Miss Hansell and the Year 6 Mini Experts.
