Show­cas­ing stu­dents’ work the real win­ner

Isis Town and Country - - News -

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.
