Over the past few weeks, and continuing into next term, our Year 9 students have been spending time in Melbourne’s CBD on Tuesdays as part of their ‘City Experience’ in their Challenge curriculum. The City Experience sees the students travel in and out of Melbourne by train and familiarise themselves with the city. They are working together to navigate around specific routes and develop maps that can be used as part of a tour. Throughout the day, the students are required to find different check points and locations where they may need to take a selfie with a monument or building or meet up with a teacher.
While in Melbourne, the students have also been visiting the Salvation Army to see the work that they do with Melbourne’s homeless population, and the Shrine of Remembrance.
All of this work is in preparation for a day in November where Mazzarello parents and staff will be invited to join the students in Melbourne before being led on a tour around the city by them. Following the tour, the guests (parents and staff) will have to evaluate their tour based on a number of criteria.
We look forward to hearing more from our Year 9s as they continue their City Experiences.
