The arts and humanities define who we are as a people. That is their power -- to remind us of what we each have to offer, and what we all have in common. To help us understand our history and imagine our future. To give us hope in the moments of struggle and to bring us together when nothing else will.

Humanities Week

Last week was Humanities Week and what a week it was. The Trading Game was back with a bang, with students and staff making investments and navigating the global markets.

Huge congratulations to Year 8 Calypso who beat their older and more seasoned competitors to bring home the trophy this year. Year 12/13 Discovery came second place and Mr Turner came third. Karen and Yuexi also composed a beautiful song inspired by the environment for Earth Day.

Students learned about the world around them through speech making, the I Spy Budapest challenge and the Roots and Shoots “Plastic not so Fantastic” campaign. We also learned about Doughnut Economics with a competition designed by our prefects and the Economics Club. 

We will end with a quote from Michelle Obama to congratulate our winners and commend our participants.
