Exploring Berwick

Imagine the excitement of 41 Year 1 students going on a walk around the streets of Berwick! Accompanied by 16 adults they made their way from St Margaret’s School, past the railway station and Monash University to the War Memorial, Berwick Inn and the Mechanics Institute Library. Lunch at Pioneer Park, the old Berwick Primary School was a highlight of the day. On the way back they looked at various buildings in High St. All this was part of their Unit of Inquiry (Where We Are in Place and Time) with the big idea ‘Communities change over time’. Despite the long walk the enthusiasm of the students was contagious and many questions were answered along the way. Everyone slept really soundly that night.
