Week 5 is Science Week across the nation and this year’s theme is Future Earth.
The library has been collaborating with the Science Department to come up with some initiatives that will inspire the students to think about their role in a more sustainable future for our planet.
The focus for us is on providing experiences and prompts for the boys that don’t require them to actually produce anything…except ideas and thoughts. Why?…because Science Week coincides with exams for our senior students. So, with these parameters in mind, we’ve put together this schedule of activities in the library during the upcoming week:
Upcycling Exhibition: All week
Includes examples of items that, rather than being discarded, have been used in new and interesting ways
War on Waste Series: Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Screening of all three episodes of the popular ABC series will be taking place at lunch times in the Group Study Space
Special Guest Speakers: Tuesday and Thursday
Craig Reucassel, host of the War on Waste series will be presenting to Year 9 boys during Period 5 & 6 on Tuesday
Luke Barnes, Astronomer with Sydney University, will be presenting to Year 9 boys during Period 5 & 6 on Thursday.
