For their second year running, and after careful and wise consideration through their S.E.A.T Project lessons, the Year 5 students of St Luke’s researched and contemplated an organisation close to their hearts. They fund-raised via their decorated SEATs and sought donations raising $1000 for Happy Days Cambodian Village School.
We are excited to have St Luke’s Grammar join the SEAT community.
The Year 5 students throughly enjoyed building the SEATs and there was lots of great collaboration going on, along with powerful communication when things didn’t work out.
They busily worked their way through the S.E.A.T Project. Students were stretched to think about the lives of others and the impact that they can make in the world. Each group of students put together a small presentation about a charity they thought it was important to support.
The students eventually decided to support the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. They were very shocked by some of statistics around indigenous literacy rates. They decorated their SEATs accordingly to send a message through their art about their chosen charity. The S.E.A.T Project gave us lots of opportunities to stretch how we work as a team and compromise on ideas about designs.
We held an online silent auction for our school community and raised over $260. The students were very pleased to be able to donate this money to the ILF, making an impact to indigenous children and their literacy levels.”
