The Nazareth Year 12 students excelled once again in undertaking their Research Project. The enthusiasm with which they embrace the opportunity to get deep learning in an area that they choose themselves, is inspiring. These young people really are conducting 21st century learning, designing their own questions, planning the ways they will investigate them and engaging meaningfully with the world to find the answers.
Some of their questions were:
This year so many students used communication tools such as Zoom to talk to people all over the world – often getting up in the middle of the night to communicate with experts in places like Norway, Canada and London. Conducting research in the middle of a world-wide pandemic is no easy feat, but the Nazareth students used imagination and perseverance to find answers. They have so many great stories to tell.
Here is a short student-led video filmed and edited by our Senior Photography Leader, Deahna Lappas, showcasing a handful of the Research Projects and their experiences.
In preparing for term 2, the Technology and Food (TEF) teachers have been busy in the kitchen adapting their curriculum to provide teaching and learning experiences for the students as we shift to online learning.
To ensure students have access to skill development, knowledge and understanding, the TEF staff have been engaging in Flipped Learning. During the last week of Term 1 a selection of delicious recipes utilising a variety of cooking methods and ingredients were filmed as video demonstrations to allow students to understand key recipe processes within the home environment. Hopefully, this will inspire students to undertake some of these recipes and cook supervised with their families.
Research has shown that cooking helps mental health as it can be a creative outlet. It is a way to channel energy, can be used as a distraction, and to express emotions through a different medium.
Here are some of their beautiful creations.
