Year 8 Connected Unley

Throughout Week 7, the Year 8s took part in the three-day program, Connected Unley.

On Day 1, students engaged with the Unley community, starting with introductions about the Unley area from Major Reno Elms of The Salvation Army and members of the City of Unley Council: Laura De Bono, Youth Officer, Matthew Ives, Cultural Development Coordinator, and Jared Wilson, Unley Architect from the City of Unley.

Students visited the Unley museum, the Soldier Memorial and engaged in role plays exploring moral dilemmas.

On the second day, students served at various venues throughout the Unley area. This year’s program included serving the following:

  • Fern Avenue Garden
  • Rosefield Uniting Church
  • St Chad’s Anglican Church
  • The Salvation Army
  • St John’s Lutheran Church
  • Waite Arboretum
  • Community gardens and the Drama Centre at Concordia

On Day 3, students worked together to showcase their involvement in the community, developing informative videos, and sharing these with their Home Class.
