Makybe Rise Primary School have lots of fun activities planned for HaSS Week. Students will be participating in different activities as part of our daily Morning Meetings. Each day has a different focus based on the HaSS key concepts, for example, Aboriginal Indigenous culture, History, Geography, Civics and Citizenship and Business and economics. Activities include exploring indigenous artefacts, guessing the teacher based on baby photos, sharing personal histories by creating family trees, making decisions and expressing opinions through philosophical chairs debates and understanding how to empathise.
Around the school, students can look at indigenous artefacts in the library which our Aboriginal and Islander Education Officer (AIEO) shared. We also will have a Then and Now QR code scavenger Hunt where students have to decipher the riddle to complete the interactive timeline around the school grounds which focuses on the development of cars and toys. Students will have an opportunity to learn about the customs, traditions and history of Indigenous Australians with an Aboriginal Virtual Reality Headsets incursion through the incursions company.
