Spirit of ANZAC Centenary Experience - Year 9
As part of our Year 9 History curriculum, a group of students attended the 'Spirit of ANZAC Centenary Experience' at the Geelong Arena.
The self-guided tour of the exhibition immerses participants in World War 1 memorabilia on loan from the National War Memorial in Canberra.
Students had the following to say about the Experience:
"It was very interesting. The quotes, the audio and the moving exhibits all made learning about WW1 more enjoyable than reading about it in class." – Shaun Altmann
"The day was fun and informative. There were a lot of things that were cool! The narration was automated and the sensors at each display helped us appreciate the artefacts on display. There were a lot of projections and edits to make it interesting, interactive and easy to understand." – Sabeer Najumudeen
Out-of-classroom experiences such as this excursion are an important part of the students learning, as it broadens their understanding and are also an enjoyable and vital part of the Christian College curriculum. The next step in this experience is for the students who attended to share what they learned with other students within their class.
