We were fortunate to have the Greater Sydney Commission recently visit our school to engage with students about their ideas on making Sydney a better place to live. Charged with the task of developing Sydney into a strong global city that is a great place to live, the Greater Sydney Commission is looking for input from a range of Sydneysiders. Our Year 9 and 11 Geography students were chosen to represent the views of young people in the South District. Using their knowledge of urban dynamics and their own experience of living in the Sutherland Shire, they put forward some innovative recommendations for our district.
Our Geography students are eagerly awaiting the publication of the draft plan in November to see which of their ideas will be included in the South District plan. This was a unique experience for our Geography students, enriching their understanding of urban planning and community consultation. Thank you to Mrs Smith for organising.
