What a fabulous Year 6 Exhibition we had last night! Our students were wonderfully articulate at presenting their learning and actions to a very large crowd of parents and extended family members.
Many people commented to me on the depth of knowledge and understanding our students displayed. They certainly demonstrated how important it is not to underestimate what children of this age can grasp. There was plenty of evidence of some pretty sophisticated understandings!
The Exhibition was also a great demonstration of how we as a school can pull together. Lots of staff from all across the school were involved as mentors and instructors, plenty of parents were involved with facilitating mini field trips and all of our students were able to be involved in a variety of ways.
I really like the move to global awareness and action as a part of our curriculum. I think that it is a powerful way to make a positive impact on our community and reflects the type of knowledge and understandings our students, who are the adults of the future, need!
