India and Hinduism

13 May 2015 - Humanities - Year 7

Year 7 RE students were asked to choose an extended homework task from a list of options launching our focus on India and Hinduism. The tasks included film making, traditional Indian cooking, fashion- design, and poetry and song composition. The responses to the set tasks were extraordinary and I was genuinely moved by the enterprise, spirit of discovery and engagement shown by students. I would like to publically congratulate all of my Year 7 students.

Well done – you amaze me, Ms Purser.
