Our wonderful teachers have been focusing on ANZAC history, geography and generally highlighted the importance of our wonderful the Humanities faculty is. This has seen Ms Kerri Weidemann and Ms Ruth Phillips RECREATE GALLIPOLI in the new DC3 space. They were joined by a group of Middle School students who have had fun constructing a replica of the Gallipoli landing. They have used kinetic sand, toy soldiers, boxes and all sorts of things, to use in building the diorama. Photos to come!
The students from Junior and Middle School have been able to use the Gallipoli App to follow the story of the first day – the people and events – within the landscape of Anzac Cove. If you haven’t downloaded this yet I highly recommend that you do!
Today we buddied up with other student to research Australia’s VC recipients or our own ANZAC ancestor. The findings were put onto a poppy or a cross and will be added to the display.
Come in and check out all our work!
