Lessons from past

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Manning -

TAL­ENTED stu­dents from Man­ning, Curtin, Vic­to­ria Park, Col­lier, Lath­lain and Wil­son pri­mary schools came to­gether for the first Curtin Ed­u­ca­tion Com­mu­nity His­tory Project.

The CEC is a net­work of 14 lo­cal pri­mary and sec­ondary schools that de­vel­oped the ini­tia­tive to give teach­ers and stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to col­lab­o­rate on a unit of work across a net­work of schools.

The topic was Lo­cal Heroes and stu­dents worked with teach­ers to de­velop their his­tor­i­cal in­quiry skills. They re­searched a per­son who they per­ceived as a hero.

The lo­cal heroes came from a range of ar­eas, in­clud­ing stu­dents, fam­ily mem­bers, medicine, lit­er­a­ture, sport and pol­i­tics.

South Perth Pri­mary School prin­ci­pal Karen Owens with Col­lier Pri­mary School stu­dent Charli Fat­ton.
