Wishing Sasha in Grade 6 a very happy birthday!!

Get Ready for your Google Expeditions!

Tomorrow, we have a representative from Google visiting Halcyon. This is a very exciting opportunity for all students to take part in the Pioneer Programme of Google Expeditions. Expeditions is a virtual reality platform built for the classroom and on Friday, your teachers will lead you on a subject-based expedition! Each Grade will get a chance to test out this new programme.

The agenda for the day is as follows:

  • Period One, 0900-0930 Grade 9 with Ms Cooke - your expedition will be to Antarctica
  • Periods One to Two, 0930-1000 Grade 7Y and 7X with Ms Rose and Mr Simpson - your expedition will be to Gettysburg National Military Park
  • Period Two, 1000-1030 Grade 11 with Mr Jones - your expedition will be to the Galapagos Islands
  • Period Three, 1050-1120 Grade 6X and 6Y with Ms Carmen and Mr Gow - your expedition will be to Burj Khalifa
  • Periods Three to Four, 1120-1150 Grade 10 History students with Ms Cooke - your expedition will be to explore the Artifacts of the Tuskegee Airmen
  • Period Four, 1150-1220 Grade 8 with Mr Costa - your expedition will be to Mount Everest
  • Lunch
  • 1220-1250, Grade 10 Geographers, staff and parents with Ms Rose - your expedition will be to Mars

Students should go to their lesson and classroom as normal. Your teacher will then take you down to the Council Room for your expedition at the scheduled time.
