Year 8 have been learning about the challenges these students face in their daily lives and were tasked with creating activities around a weekly theme. This week, the theme was ‘Natural Disasters’.
After a warm welcome, there was a home-made volcanic eruption demonstration followed by the students splitting into three groups; an obstacle course to represent the aftermath of a disaster, a construction exercise to create buildings that could withstand the table shaking and a colouring and origami exercise related to disasters.
All of these student-led activities were well planned and executed enabling our students to interact with the visiting students on a one-to-one basis. In doing this, they did brilliantly, showing empathy, kindness and care to our visitors. They should all be very proud of themselves.
