Term 1, Week 11 — School news, upcoming dates and notices
A Message from Hillary Team
It has been a busy start to the year in Hillary Team. We have been doing art, passion projects, inquiry and many more. We have had lots of challenges along the way and have had to push ourselves and take risks in our learning. We can’t wait for next term. We are looking forward to following more of our passions.
Term 1 Passion Projects
This term Hillary Team have been working on passion projects. These projects are topics we are passionate about and help us to extend our learning. We can work in a group or by ourselves. Passion projects are every Friday and we enjoy learning about our interests.
In our group we have been learning about holograms. The reason we wanted to learn about holograms for passion projects is because we we were interested in them and wanted to learn more. We made the holograms with a plastic bottle. Firstly we cut a bottle in half. Then using a computer we played a video with images and used the bottle to create the images above the computer.

This term our inquiry has been all about fairness. We have been learning about equity and equality. Equity is when people get stuff based on their needs for example, their was four pencils and three people. One person had two pencils all ready and the other two didn’t so that would get two each. Equality is when everyone gets the same for example, there are three people and three pencils everyone would get one pencil each.
For inquiry Ashton and Max are working on a school soccer team for competition we think it is unfair because heaps of people enjoy the sport and would want to play it for school.
