French Bac - Geology (22-09-2020) x 2 photos

FRENCH BACCALAURÉAT - GEOLOGY

425 million years of Silurian history is exposed in the layers of State Circle's prehistoric rock. As we drive over Fairbairn Avenue bridge, we give little or no thought to the prehistoric marine fossils from 427 million years ago that are preserved right beneath our cars. Along with a walk around Geoscience's rock displays in Symonston our French Baccalauréat geology students experienced geological formations that were preserved long before the arrival of humanity on our planet. A most fascinating experience right here in inner Canberra.

Author Peter Papathanasiou visits NARC

Author Peter Papathanasiou visits Narrabundah College.

Several Life Stories classes were lucky enough to be visited by Canberra author Peter Papathanasiou, author of 'Little One' - an autobiographical account of Peter finding out, at age 24, that he was adopted, and the subsequent quest to meet his birth parents and brothers in Greece.  Peter shared with these classes insights into the writing and publishing process and hopefully inspired students to assess and write about their own experiences.  (August 2020).
