7.4 Chapel in the City

On Thursday, 27 June, the Year 7 and 8 students went into the city, where Rev Wall and former Scotch College Headmaster Rev Syme co-conducted a service in Wesley Church.  The boys listened attentively throughout the service, respecting both the occasion and church.  Kolbi Smith's moving Acknowledgement to Country, Heydar Ismayilov and Guy Teissier's fantastic singing, the wonderful backing of the band and Rev Syme's powerful message about leadership through service were some of highlights.  Congratulations to Rev Wall for initiating such a memorable occasion and to the staff involved in planning a well organised excursion.

Following the service, we made our way to Cinema Paradiso, for a private screening of the movie 2040, which identified a range of current innovative solutions being implemented around the globe, aimed at improving the health of both our planet and society.

On returning to the College, students in 7.4 discussed the themes in 2040, making links to topics covered earlier in the year.  Following this, each boy identified a solution they connected with, conducted research, shared ideas and summarised their findings in a variety of ways, including the use of infographics.


Overall, the day was a great success and the boys represented the College with distinction.
