Year 7 APEX Excursion

Week Seven was a busy week for APEX. On Thursday, our Year 7 APEX classes went to Boondall Environmental Centre. This excursion, in place of the annual trip to UQ, allowed students to delve deeper into their Ancient Australia inquiry. Rick, our cultural educator, helped students to explore Dream Time stories, fire making techniques, boomerang throwing and the use of symbols for communication in Pre-Colonial Australia.

After lunch, students had the opportunity to explore the wetlands and develop their creative side. Students used curriculum knowledge from the Visual Art and Film and TV electives. They explored the influence of natural surroundings on art as well as applied their knowledge of the elements of photography to take some stunning photos, pictured below.
