School’s out Friday

Today is end of term here in Melbourne; school holidays now for two glorious weeks. It’s been a hectic last few weeks so these holidays are a much needed break.

This is a great video so make sure you watch it. It was uploaded to our Yr 9 ning this week, recommended for inclusion by one of our students who saw the parallels between it and the attitudes to women in 1960’s Australia. This, all a result of our text study of ‘Bye, Beautiful’, which was set in country Western Australia 1966.  Nothing better than a student making connections between something they’re watching and what’s been discussed in class. Makes it all worth it.

Enjoy the weekend. I’m looking forward to sleeping in and no correction!

  1. Yes, I must admit that I refrain from embarrassing myself and my gender in the company of men by making intelligent conversation. Thanks for a laugh at the end of a week/term, and have a relaxing break, Jenny.
