Last week, as part of the project based learning (PBL) program in English & Humanities, Year 7 students facilitated Book Week. Each group was challenged to run a workshop or activity in the Ciantar Learning Commons that promoted the importance of reading.
After much planning and preparation, the final products were very creative and succeeded in starting a school-wide conversation about reading.
Some of the events included:
To conclude the week, one PBL group set a Salesian College record with the most people reading at once in a set place. This was held on the Mansion Lawns, with 71 students and staff in attendance; all reading consistently for a mimum of three minutes.
It was an exciting week of events and the students managed the challenge with maturity and enthusiasm. Congratulations to all involved.
