Welcome to Sylvia Park School

What's happening in our school?

Term 1 Inquiry

 “Growing a good idea”

How can I ensure we don’t need Mars as our plan B?  (Year 4-8)

How can I think global and act local to slow climate change?  (Year 1-3)

The issue of climate change is a huge challenge for people all over the world.  However, even though it seems like a challenge that is too big for any one of us to solve we know that if we each play a part together we can make a difference.  This term we will be learning exactly that through our inquiry, which has a science focus. 

Our students will be learning that as scientists they need to ask questions about our world that lead to investigations and that open-mindedness is important because there may be more than one explanation.  They will be developing an understanding that water, air, rocks, soil, and life forms make up our planet and recognise that these are also Earth’s resources.

They will investigate the water cycle and its effect on climate, landforms, and life.

Watch out for the Sylvia Park School Sustainability Summit in Week 10 of this term.  It’s going to be good – actually it going to be great!  

 

2015 Inquiry

 It's worth the fight for equal rights. How can we act to make a dramatic impact? Students answer their inquiry by learning about people who have stood up for their own and others rights. They answer their own question by creating a production to tell their learning story. They designed the costumes, wrote the scripts, designed the sets and performed the stories!
This is what we expect of a term's worth of student inquiry at Sylvia Park School.
