Gippsland Primary School Program

We would like to thank the principals, teachers, parents and students who worked with us to make this program possible.
Participating students came from the following schools:
- Alberton Primary School
- St Gabriel's Catholic Primary School
- St Kieran's Catholic Primary School, Moe
- St Mary's Primary School, Sale
- Yallourn North Primary School
- 'I found it good to be with people who have read the same things as me and knew about the same things as me.'
- 'Teachers were supportive and encouraging. I was worried that I wouldn’t understand anything, but the teachers explained everything well.'
- 'The HEP Program helped me to build not only my knowledge but also my social skills and taught me how I learn better.'
- 'I loved how there weren’t as many rules as school. Like we could doodle.'
- 'I think the HEP workshop did a great job because we were always learning something and enjoying ourselves.'
- 'I thought it was a good experience to be with like-minded people.'
- 'The play [For the Love of Becker, Two Friends Productions] was fun and funny and I learned heaps of things.'
- 'I loved the range of history and the range of learning styles.'
- 'One of my favourite lessons was the model making because I thought it made us think in different ways.'
- 'I was really interested in the Viking and Roman workshop. I learned heaps of stuff.'
- 'Having the mini-lectures really broadened my thinking about history.'
- 'I found it challenging. It is good challenging though.'
- 'I am really excited for the passion project because I enjoy independent projects.'
