The Hills Gram­mar School

Al­though quite young, Hills Gram­mar is for­tu­nate to have a part time archivist who cu­rates a col­lec­tion for dis­play in the School Mu­seum; the lounge room of the Jack­son home still re­main­ing from the orig­i­nal pur­chase of 22 acres in 1981. Year One stu­dents found their ‘ex­cur­sion’ to the Mu­seum a valu­able one as they dis­cover how ‘ We Ex­plore His­to­ries Through Stories’ – the cen­tral theme of their cur­rent In­ter­na­tional Bac­calau­re­ate PYP area of en­quiry. The chil­dren were asked to take five pho­tos with their ipads, of things that had changed; build­ings, uni­forms, class­rooms and peo­ple. “The stu­dents ab­so­lutely loved it!” re­marked Year One teacher Lau­ren An­thony, “They found the girls old hats itchy and didn’t recog­nise the Com­modore from 1983 as a com­puter. An­other favourite ac­tiv­ity was recog­nis­ing teach­ers who were once stu­dents. ”
