The children from St Peter’s Coleambally really enjoyed the CCK Local Land Heroes. Each student has told me that the experience was a positive one, and I was impressed to see the children interacting with each other in their planning and drafting. Our local land hero commented on the children’s insightful questions, and the children although nervous beforehand, really enjoyed interviewing Mr Star (more than once).
The program had educational benefits – writing for a purpose, summarising, proof reading and editing, as well as many social benefits for the children involved. Our school would love to see the program continue in 2016 and beyond.
