Last week our Year 7 HASS students took part in an archaeological dig here on the grounds of the College.

In class students have been learning about the history of ancient societies. The dig provided students with not only a different way of learning, but with a practical understanding of the possibilities of what can be found on a dig site, who works on site, and how to work out what the items might have been used for.

Students in the academic extension class have been working on creating Roman archways without any glue (cement), and edible Roman roads to learn about the layers and structure of the roads. Both activities helped extend their knowledge of Roman inventions and innovations and has links to STEM.
