The Archibull Prize Round Up – June 2018

 

Welcome to our first Archibull Prize Roundup –  special shoutout to Daniel from Salt Media for our super cool Roundup animation.

Our Roundup will share #archieaction in and out of the classroom in the journey of our  30 schools participating in The Archibull Prize 2018 competition.

OUT OF THE CLASSROOM

The Henry Lawson High School bit the bullet and put two of their prize winning Archies up for Auction at the Henry Lawson Festival raising $$$$$ for the school. See the full story here 

Students from The Lakes College, Youth off the Streets program visited Grace Springs Farm at Kulnura.

“The students learnt about holistic farming, permaculture and the benefits of chemical-free produce. Virginia and Tony engaged them in all aspects of the property and I know that when we return to the classroom the discussion around their experiences will be rich.“  said Amy Gill teacher

Read all about the powerful effect the excursion had on the teachers and students in their blog here 

IN THE CLASSROOM.

Archie was guest of honour at the Year 8 Battle of the Bands at Picnic Point High School

Our Young Farming Champions Sam Wan, Emma Ayliffe and Tayla Field visited schools in Sydney and Wollongong to talk all things WOOL, COTTON and HORTICULTURE

Tayla Field was quick to spot the employee of the month at Gwynneville Public School with the winner of this Traceability workshop competition packing spinach as fast as the team on the floor at the OneHarvest plant. Just under 20 seconds. What a star

OUT IN THE COMMUNITY 

This year we have a number of primary schools building community between themselves and local high schools.

Big shoutout to the teams at Little Bay of Community Schools working with Year 8 mentors at Matraville Sports High School
