Learning in action

This past term the students at Stanhope Road School have been studying financial capability and environmental sustainability as well as entrepreneurship for their enquiry topic: "Can we build it? Yes, we can"

I have been very fortunate to have been invited to attend and judge both the "Team One Entrepreneurship Expo" and the "Team Rua Shark Tank". The expo involved students showcasing their work on folio boards, and the Shark Tank involved an oral presentation to a panel. There were some truly great initiatives that I saw come out of these, and students confidently, and persuasively, presented their ideas to the judges.

To the students and teachers, keep up the good work. You showed us real evidence of learning and guardianship in action.

As a board, we will now incorporate the winning ideas into our property plan for next year. So, watch this space.
