8.5A Visit to Kings Park

On February 23, boys in 8.5A participated in the Year 8 cross-curricular excursion to Kings Park. This provided the students with an array of unique opportunities to not only experience Kings Park from the perspective of different subjects (Humanities, English and Mathematics), but also apply skills they had learned in class to the excursion activities; furthermore, students were required to apply the knowledge gained from the excursion to their first Humanities assessment of the term.

It was great to see students of 8.5A working in teams to complete the orienteering and mathematics activities. They also demonstrated their field sketching skills, using the city skyline and Swan River as the main sketching subjects. Under the shade of the beautiful Kings Park trees, students wrote creative pieces of writing from the perspective of nature. This was a rich learning experience for the students of 8.5A and it was fun to take learning outdoors.
