21st Century Learning
The great thing about Wadalba Community School is our commitment to strengthening our community ties for the benefit of all. In the case of our Mural Project, the focus was on our younger community members and students, and their safety on our roads.Please enjoy the attached clip documenting the project.
Easter Show District Exhibit
Congratulations to our students, supported by teachers across several faculties, for their achievement in coming second at the Easter Show District Exhibit. Their large scale work, representing and partnering with Central District farmers in NSW highlights many great attributes about learning in the 21st century. The judges applauded how articulate the students were, that they owned the work, and the originality of the concept which was based on a John Olsen artwork from the district. 2017 was our second year in the District Exhibit.
Our First Book Published
Our Aboriginal Student Writers group published our first book, Writers of the Future, 2015. It includes a collection of student writing that has been published in Deadly Vibes magazine.
Renovating the Playground Boat for Tacoma PS
Our Technology and Applied Science students in collaboration with our cultural affirmation group and students from Tacoma Primary School restored the boat for Tacoma Public School's playground. The school is part of a proud river community.
Y4-6 and Y7 students develop a "passion project" as part of their student led learning work in Genius Hour. Here are some photos from the Y4-6 sharing market where students shared their final products which included research, creating solutions to solve contemporary problems, writing a book, creating their own video games and other multimedia texts.
Primary Playground Upgrade
For 18 months, our 5/6 class 2015 have been working on a playground proposal. This includes writing convincing arguments in the form of letters and multimedia presentations and presented them to school executive and the p and c. Ideas were developed through a study of built environment curriculum. One of the impressive aspects of the proposals were they way they considered a range of priorities for different students.
In T3 2015, we got some new soccer goals a sports shed. In T4 2015, a MASSIVE sandpit for the inside playground has been built with thanks to the high school building and construction class and Mr Tunks who all worked very hard to get the job done in a very professional way. Your efforts have been rewarded.
