It's been said that many times education should incorporate aspects of fun and creativity to help facilitate real learning.
This concept is something I have wholeheartedly embraced in my teachings of wellbeing, life and communication skills at Parramatta College.
My students are not what you would call run of the mill. They have been labelled as "disadvantaged", as far as employment and business prospects go.
Just in case you blinked and missed it, last week saw Eskimo the miniature pony visit our class where he was treated to being painted and pampered from head to hoof. Eskimo and the students really enjoyed themselves. The end result was a pony turned into a zebra, and a whole lot of fun, creativity, and we filmed some footage which will eventually be turned into a documentary.
