Throughout the week our Year 7 Humanities students have been visiting the WA Museum Boola Bardip to learn about local history as well as develop historical skills. Students also carried out an investigation of the liveability of the inner city as part of their Geography course.

The excursions had a meaningful impact on the students, with many reflecting on what they had learned.

“I really liked the session on repatriation, which got me thinking about all the artefacts and whether we are doing the right thing with them” – James Cardaci.

“It was really cool to see some exhibits showing things which go back thousands, or even, millions of years” – Adam Porter.
