Celebrating Enquiry Learning as school launches a TV Station

A whole school event was held to launch our school TV Station.
The school hall was decked out
with a red carpet and a 5
metre wide back projection Screen. Special Guests from the local community and school system attended as well as our 320
TV Stars! We even invited our special mascot “Star Man”.

The launch included a video link up with Education Minister Peter Garrett MP.

Technology teacher Tim Butt said since 2010 students at the school had been building their skills through drama and music programs, the Habits of the Mind program initiative and other new collaborative learning processes.

“These three areas, and many other great opportunities have enabled us to build oral language skills, creative thinking and problem solving strategies,” he said.
“Over the past two years each learning space at Holy Family has been equipped with contemporary technology tools.”
Mr Butt said the teaching and supprt staff at Holy Family were proud of their students, who were asking deep thinking questions and finding real solutions, to help make a difference in the world.
