Showcasing students’ work the real winner
AT THE conclusion of 2014, Garth Robinson from Childers Rotary Club, approached Isis District State High School with the aim of running a program which would support student learning and outcomes without creating extra workload on both students and teachers.
The Year 10 English unit ‘Teens and Extremes Multimodal Presentations’ fitted the criteria of public speaking combined with technology. Ten of the students’ work was selected for Rotary to view, before deciding on the final three contenders.
At a dinner held by Childers Rotary, finalists, Eden Farimbella, Savannah Carroll and Rhiannon Simpson, introduced their Multimodal Presentations.
All presentations were of an extremely high standard with Rhiannon being awarded First Prize ($250); Eden – Second Prize ($150); Savannah – Third Prize ($100). Congratulations to these students and to all nominees from Year 10.
Thanks also to Childers Rotary for providing our school’s students with an opportunity to showcase their skills in the public arena.
This partnership with Childers Rotary will continue in 2016 with a program to support and award students’ public speaking.
ROTARY AWARDS: Savannah Carroll, Eden Farimbella and Rhiannon Simpson.
