Year 7 Humanities

Did you know that scientists are thinking of releasing the Giant Triton Snail in the Great Barrier Reef to keep the Crown of Thorns Starfish under control? Year 7 Humanities students do! This was the topic of the article they critically read this week.

Since their return to school, Year 7 Humanities classes have hit the ground running.  Thye have developed a range of skills, especially the ability to critically read.  Critical reading is an effective strategy that allows students to gain a deeper understanding of texts through the extension of their vocabulary, being able to make links between paragraphs and also by thinking about the possibilities beyond the text by making predictions.  This skill is now one that they will have forever and will not doubt serve our Humanities students well as they progress through high school.

To our new Year 6 families starting GHS 2021,

What a year already!!!  Our transition program has been a little disrupted this year by we reassure you, we have been making every effort to virtually engage with your children.  They have had a virtual tour of the school, virtually met their Year Adviser and Head Teacher Welfare and learnt all about GHS!!  Now you get to have your own faculty and subject tour as a family.  Follow the link below to take a "stroll" through our wonderful subject areas.

We can't wait to meet you all.  Carla Drummond - Year Adviser and Erin Manu - Head Teacher Welfare.
