Our ASPIRE Program invites local primary students to work with Year 8 Siena student mentors on STEAM based activities. STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) education is an integrated curriculum designed to equip students with knowledge in these five disciplines whilst gaining valuable collaborative and analytical skills.
In 2021, our ASPIRE participants are exploring colour principles of both pigment and light, artistic symbolism and sustainability. We were excited to have St Bridget's Primary student visit this week, working with our students to explore what "home" means to each of them. They created model houses which were combined together as an installation to form a community, watched the 3D printer in action, and presented their findings about colour via a livestream to their parents. Principal Elizabeth Hanney awarded all of our visitors with a certificate of participation and commended them on their terrific enthusiasm over the two day program.
