A highlight for the LEX@R students in Semester 1 was a jam-packed excursion to the Army Museum of WA and the Aviation Heritage Museum.
In Semester 1, the LEX@R students were taken on a journey back in time to examine aspects of the Second World War. This seemed like a long time ago for many of the students, though it became clear throughout the unit that many of the issues covered were still quite topical for them today.
A highlight of the semester was a jam-packed excursion to the Army Museum of Western Australia in Fremantle and the Aviation Heritage Museum in Bull Creek. This gave students an opportunity to see artefacts from WWII up close and some of the machines that were developed during the war. This really brought life and scale to what had been covered in class and from the students’ research.
We thank God for His provision and the reducing of COVID restrictions and ability to hold our Semester 1 showcase at the end of Term 2. The students set up displays of their learning that covered the whole semester. This was held at the Wilson STEAM room whilst staff, family and friends were welcomed to view and enjoy the exhibition. It was wonderful to see how LEX@R students shared their learning during this time as they chatted and highlighted significant points from their own research projects.
It was a pleasure to work with the Semester 1 LEX@R students and we look forward to more opportunities to encourage our students across both Kenwick and Wilson campuses to delve deeper into learning and stretch their understandings.
