Term 2 was eventful for Humanities, with many excursions and incursions across multiple year levels.
Early in the term, students from the Year 10 Century of Change classes visited the Jewish Holocaust Centre. They had the opportunity to listen to the experiences of a Holocaust survivor and further their understanding of the horrors of the Holocaust as they explored the museum and its artefacts. The Hands on Humanities classes and the Earth and Me classes also had excursions, visiting Cranbourne Central to learn more about practical financial literacy and the Dandenong Catchment.
Year 9 students began their study of World War I with memorial boxes put together by the Australian War Memorial. Students were able to engage with artefacts from the time period and add to their understanding of life during the Great War. They also visited the Shrine of Remembrance, exploring the grounds of the Shrine and participating in a guided tour. During the tour, they were led through the museum and developed an understanding of the personal experiences of the ANZAC soldiers and what they endured during battles such as Gallipoli.
To finish of the term, Year 7 students will be visiting the Chinese History Museum and exploring Chinatown to complete their study of Ancient China.
