Hennessy students have been extremely busy during Term 4.
Our 9/10 elective art class have participated in a number of practical workshops that include clay, silkscreen printing, mosaics and painting. The silkscreen workshop was extended with an external source, Megalo Print Studio in Canberra and students were able to create their own T-shirts and bags which they printed with their own designs. It has been a wonderful term as each and every student has been engaged, enthusiastic and creating works of art that are both conceptually and visually engaging.
On Friday 13th September, the Year 11 biology class went on a field trip to Canowindra to further their knowledge of the evolution unit in their course. They participated in a fossil dig under the guidance of Bruce Loomes from Gondwana Dreaming. Students cracked open rocks that were appropriately 520 million years old and found fossils of trilobites, a group of extinct marine arachnomorph arthropods. The students then went to the Age of Fishes Museum, where they listened to experts in the field talk about the significance of the fossils that are on show at the Museum. This gave the students a better understanding and appreciation of how organisms have evolved and changed over time.
The last week of term the college farewelled our 2019 Year 12 cohort with a celebratory mass and luncheon. The year group had a fantastic final week celebrating the culmination of 12 years of schooling. We wish our Year 12 all the best with their upcoming HSC exams.
We hope all our students and families enjoy the holiday break. Hennessy students will return to the college on Tuesday October 15th 2019.
