Assemblies and Guest Speakers
Assemblies are the opportunities for student display of H.S.I.E. projects.
This is also an opportunity for a diverse range of guest speakers, correlated where possible to focus on the H.S.I.E. unit being studied, e.g. Aboriginal guest speakers came to speak as part of the Aboriginal Studies unit.


The students have made a number of excursions. Local day excursions support and enhance units of work, these are made around Adelong and Tumut and include Museum visits and local shops.

Students visit Canberra on a day excursion with K,1,2 experiencing a live theatre show and upper primary visiting a place of interest which relates to work that is being studied at that time.

Visits to school at Brungle (special displays of Aboriginal artefacts) and visit to the local Aboriginal Art Exhibition are part of the unit on Aboriginal Studies.
