LPC Week

19/09/2013
​Year 8 students enjoying the challenging activities of LPC Week
In the final week of Term 3, Home Hill SHS students are involved in LPC week. During this week students are involved in activities which enhance the curriculum and promote Home Hill State High School’s three key elements of Learning, Performance and Citizenship.
A group of year 12 students travelled to Canberra to explore the nation’s capital as part of their civics and citizenship program and then on to the ski-fields and home via Sydney. This tour offered many students a number of ‘firsts’ and has been an unforgettable experience.
The year 9 students who attended the annual camp at Terrible Creek also had an excellent time and faced many new challenges – abseiling, orienteering, archery, hiking, camping and for some of them even cooking for themselves over a fire for the first time. The camp not only develops citizenship aspects such as leadership, persistence and teamwork, but it also reinforces a broad range of curriculum elements in a real world context.
Year 10, 11 and 12 students were engaged in work experience in the final week of the term and this was a great opportunity for students to explore possible career paths and experience the ‘real’ world.
During LPC week the year 8 students were involved in a program arranged by Louise Clark with support from numerous staff members.  A highlight of the week was the parent BBQ. These activities are not only extremely valuable educationally; they encourage students to excel in what they do, while developing positive attitudes. 
We also hosted year 5s and 6s from a range of schools: Millaroo, Airville, St Colmans, Gumlu, Osborne, Home Hill SS and Maidavale. They participated in the LaLuna acrobatic and circus event, experienced Science in action and learned more about what high school is like. It was received very well by this special group, who will be our first group of Year 7s and 8s arriving together at high school in 2015.
Many thanks to the organising staff of all these wonderful activities and to the good conduct of the students involved.
