Grade 6 Passions and Pathways Program

In term three, Eaglehawk Primary School Grade 6 students participated in the Passions and Pathways Project as part of Integrated Studies. Students attended LaTrobe University, Bendigo TAFE, the Trade Training Centre and industries including Bunnings Warehouse Epsom, Dennis Family Homes, Bendigo CFA, Bendigo Tourism and Botanic Gardens White Hills. Students had a choice to choose from three projects:

  • Hair and Beauty at Jools for Jim where students learnt about social skills that are vital for working in the industry as well as practical skills such as washing, drying, straightening, curling hair and applying makeup.
  •  Design and Construction at Penno's Design and Drafting and Bendigo Tafe where students learnt how to design houses using Computer Aided Devices and how to use building tools to create a device holder.   
  • Medical Mysteries at Monash School of Rural Health where students learnt about germs as well as human bones.

Students concluded their Passions and Pathways experience with an Expo where the other three schools as well as Eaglehawk PS students showcased their learning to the Bendigo businesses involved and the Passions and Pathways stakeholders.
