Teaching and Learning

Moerlina’s PALS project in 2005 was a meaningful action-learning activity where students worked collaboratively though the inquiry process. Students researched aspects of the local community, such as facilities and businesses, culture and recreation.

This project supported the school’s use of student-centred learning, by empowering students to take the lead at every stage, from contacting and interviewing community members to storyboarding, filming, editing, promoting and launching the film.

The Coonana camps also provide opportunities for learning both during and after the experience. In 2005, the Year 6/7 students practised their English and technology skills by preparing a PowerPoint presentation for parents and other year groups, complete with digital photographs of the camp activities.
