Darwin’s longest established public school, Parap Primary are members of a team of 6 Darwin schools embracing the S.E.A.T Project for 2018. The Year 4 students have reflected on resilience, tolerance and discovered through wise decision making how they can be positive influencers.
My class and I have gotten a bit carried away with exploring all of the issues out there locally and globally. The students have researched homelessness, drought in Australia, equal access to education and poverty. They have also explored some of the 17 global goals.
The five Year 4/3 classes have focussed their attention on supporting these organisations:
- Shelterbox Australia
- Food Bank NT
- The Refugee Council of Australia
- World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF)
The students are planning to run a silent auction at the Parap Markets in order to promote their causes and raise funds.”
