This is the home base to stay informed of everything relating to the KSC Melbourne City Experience excursion run for all of our Year 9s. There are several easy ways to keep up to date and be involved.
The 5-day My City Experience program provides an educational, cultural and fun experience for Year 9 students who will gain valuable skills in Civics and Citizenship and Communication while interacting with the wider community. This is a cross-curriculum program where students are able to access their knowledge from core Year 9 subjects as well as electives, in order to create a hypothesis in relation to the City of Melbourne. Students build their interpersonal skills by working in teams so that they can make conclusions, and then present these to the school community.
The program includes:
- Cultural tour of Melbourne
- Personal Skill Building
- Interpersonal skill building
- Safe and appropriate behaviour in the city
- Visits to various Melbourne landmarks
- Creation of hypothesis
- Data collection
- Drawing conclusions from data
