Year 8 Brainstorm Productions

On Friday the 22nd July Year 8 viewed a cyber bullying production in Yallunga Hall through a cutting edge educational theatre performance.

Some of the cyber bullying content covered in the production included:

  • WHO’S responsible?
  • WHAT drives cyber bullies to send that nasty message, post that hurtful comment or embarrassing photo on Facebook or Snapchat?
  • WHY are some people more likely to be a target and why is it hard for victims to be assertive or resilient?
  • WHERE can they go if or when they are being cyber bullied?
  • HOW can we stop cyber bullying from happening?

A cleverly crafted narrative allows students to examine these questions AND their own behaviour. At the conclusion of the presentation students are required do complete a reflection worksheet on the performance.

 

Year 11 PDHPE Senior First Aid

On Tuesday, 28th June, Year 11 PDHPE participated in their Senior First Aid Certificate Course with the Royal Life Saving Society Australia. On this day, students learnt about the legal aspects of First Aid, how to deal with emergency medical situations and management of medical conditions and injuries. Students also focused on how to perform CPR on a casualty and learnt how to bandage different injuries. This day will be very helpful as not only is it important to the PDHPE course – Option 1: First Aid, but also in everyday life situations. The students gain knowledge and learn new skills on how to preserve a life before medical aid arrives.
