Abstract

Across our school, students in years K-6 create a passion project that is linked to a topic they have studied during the year in the areas of dance, drama, music, media, visual arts, science, history, geography and values education. In this learning module year 1 and 2 (Wattle) students brainstorm ideas, create a plan for their projects, evaluate their plans and their peers' plans, and then create their passion projects with support from their Year 5 and 6 (Banksia) buddies. These are shared through performance/presentations' displays. Underpinning these passion projects is a focus on developing students' ICT skills and their social capabilities.
