Rich Inquiry Learning

This term the students delved into the Inquiry unit to discover “How can we work towards a fair and inclusive society?”
We discovered the History of Federation, Democracy, Rights of citizens, Voting and Immigration. We went on an excursion to Parliament House and found out how rights of people in Australia have evolved over the past 300 years.
Each student selected a topic or issue to research further and then presented it to the class. Using Google Drive each student shared their discoveries and deepened their learning.


From Little Things Big Things Grow

This is a story about a poignant moment in Australian history. It is based on the song by Paul Kelly. It gives a detailed account of an immensely important time in native Australian history.
From Little Things Big Things Grow tells the tale of the Gurindji people who rose up against lousy working conditions and wages and made a land rights claim that set in motion an 8-year ‘wait’ for land rights.
