Humanities Week 2018
Library Gallery Walk: viewing of student posters
During Week 8, students from all levels had to visit the library to view the posters. Each class was assigned to visit the library at specific times during Humanities lessons. The students voted for the best poster in terms of design and depth of research. At the end of the gallery walk in the library, students had to write a short reflection on what they had learnt during the library visit.
Daily anecdotes during flag-raising ceremony
Another significant event that took place on Week 8 was the daily anecdotes shared by student emcees to the rest of the school during the morning flag-raising ceremony from 20th to 21st March. Student emcees shared interesting information and statistics pertaining to the refugees in other parts of the world such as Myanmar and Syria. Their presentations were supported by videos that touched the hearts of the audience.
Effective lesson package during Form Teacher’s Time (FTT)
A lesson package was created for FTT by Miss Fatimah. The package was used by all Form Teachers on the last day of HW. The lesson package, which focused on the consequences faced by refugees such as isolation and rejection by citizens of their host countries, taught students the importance of showing love and support to people, who are suffering. As a result of the lesson package, students were inspired to write messages of love and peace dedicated to the refugees in coloured cards. Each colour of these cards represents one of the colours found in a rainbow, which is the official symbol of peace in Italy.
Building the Peace Wall
As a last activity that marked the end of HW, up to 15 students sought action to help out refugees from all over the world in a different way. They aimed to spread awareness of the value of love that is needed to be shown to fellow human beings as well as the message to help one another in times of suffering, They did this by forming the word ‘PEACE’ on a wall in level 2 Block C using the coloured card messages written by students during FTT. They did this in a hope to reach out to all Dunearnites, who will pass by the wall during school hours and read the messages written by their fellow peers in school.

Term 1 Week 5 had been an exciting week for the students from the graduating classes. They took part in our annual Higher Institution and Career Week organised by the Educational Career Guidance Committee. Various institution of higher learning, such as NAFA, Junior Colleges and all the polytechnics took part in this event. Valuable information on post-secondary school education was shared with our students. Our students also had the opportunity to learn more about the changes and development in these institutions from the lecturers and presenters.
The highlight of the event was the sharing on career choices by members of our alumni. We have a group of successful ex-students who returned to share their experience with their juniors. Some of the career choices shared were Architect, Food technologist and police. These talks have benefitted our students greatly as they provide some insight for our students, and it also motivates them to work hard in their studies.
We will also be showcasing our alumni members in the coming months, do look out for their stories on the school website.
