The following gives you an idea of some of the extra activities that students from Melville Intermediate have the opportunity to be involved with at our school. Students have six hours a week of specialist instructions, three hours a week of specialist technology (Music and Sewing in Term One) and two further hour and half blocks of additional specialist teaching that could range from Rockets to French depending on the option the students choose.
Prashant from Room 8 wrote about the following highlights from Term One:
MUSIC - our first technology was music. Our teacher is Mr Bell. We all played everything. There were drums, keyboards and guitars. On the last day we made a band and played a song. In my group was me, Dylan, Bradyn, and Kaleb. I was playing drums and Dylan was playing guitars and Bradyn was playing guitars also. Kaleb sang a song.
SEWING - In our technology second option we were doing sewing. We had to make a pencil case. We not two pieces of nylon and a zip for our pencil case. We sew the zip onto the nylon to make our pencil case. When we finished making them we got to make cushions.
OPTIONS - In my option it was Cooking. We baked lots of things like sponge rolls and hokey pokey. We also made Louise Cakes and piklets. The last thing that we made was ginger gems.
