Co-ordinate Geometry Gets Practical! Whilst many senior school students may easily negotiate their way around the Summer Hill Campus, sometimes this still remains a challenge for the Junior School students. Year 6 put their co-ordinate geometry skills to the test when they took to the School armed with a map and a set of co-ordinates, intent on finding a variety of locations within the School. Students were given a variety of co-ordinates and their task was to find their particular locations, then look for the code word hidden at that location. To make things more interesting, not everybody had the same co-ordinates and they had to locate all of the six co-ordinates in fifteen minutes. Once all the code words were found, the race was on to see who would make it back to the classroom first. Codes were checked and winners were announced. Congratulations Year 6 on a job well done.

Year 6 Junior School Canberra Excursion As an introduction to the PYP Unit of Inquiry into Leadership, the Junior School Year 6 boys had the opportunity to travel to our nation’s capital. In the last week of Term One, they participated in an extensive hands-on three-day educational experience. The boys were provided with an opportunity to see first hand how democracy works and how the leaders who represent Australia are elected at a Federal level. While in Canberra they participated in a variety of programmes focused on Australia’s history, culture, heritage and democracy. They had the opportunity to visit many of the fascinating attractions that Canberra has to offer, including the National Capital Exhibition Centre, Parliament House, Australian War Memorial, Questacon, Electoral Education Office, Foreign Embassies, National Museum of Australia, Telstra Tower and the Australian Institute of Sport. Thank you to all the boys and staff for making the tour such a worthwhile experience.
