From the HSIE Faculty

In recent weeks, our HSIE classrooms have been providing opportunities for students to deepen their understanding of the humanities, as well as develop skills in technologies and coding. Additionally, students have been actively engaging in public speaking and debate, refining their communication abilities and critical thinking skills. 

Year 7 students combine Geography and coding with Microbits

To wrap up their semester of Geography, 7A and 7B students have been focusing on geographical skills and embarked on an exciting project that integrated their geography and coding abilities. By utilising Microbits, they were able to create functional compasses, combining their understanding of geographical concepts with the power of coding. This project empowered students to think critically, problem-solve, and develop valuable coding skills.

Year 11 Legal Studies students engage in an intense debate on whether Australia should have a Charter of Rights

Congratulations to the Year 11 Legal Studies students for their impressive participation in a thought-provoking debate on whether Australia should have a Charter of Rights!

The four teams (two for and two against) displayed thorough preparation and presented well-researched arguments. Their insightful perspectives and well-supported points demonstrated the power of informed discussion and critical thinking. Well done to all the students involved!
