Year 10 Humanities and Social Sciences Camp

The Year 10 HaSS class (Humanities and Social Sciences), travelled to Brisbane for three days in February to visit the War Memorial as part of their learning on World War Two. While there, they incorporated visits to the Spark Lab, Gallery of Modern Art, and the Revolution Sports Park.

Students began their camp with some time at the Shrine of Remembrance and observed the Eternal Flame, where they were able to deepen their understanding of the war and the enormity of the impact it had. They also visited the Anzac Square Parkland statues and memorials at the Anzac Square Memorial Gallery.

The Spark Lab, an interactive Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) space, allowed the students to experience some hands-on learning as well as participate in science shows. The Gallery of Modern Art presented the students with an insight into art and culture from Queensland, Australia and around the world.

The students thoroughly enjoyed the mental and physical challenge of Revolution Sports Park. Its massive indoor adventure playground featured endless trampolines, rock climbing, and ninja ramps. The teamwork, courage and motivation students demonstrated here to support and encourage each other was wonderful.

Throughout the camp, all the students grew as community members, learning humility and respect through their planned experiences and their interactions with people and places in Brisbane. The Year 10 students would like to thank the many local community groups and individuals who helped to make this camp so successful.


Connect is an exciting new program being implemented at Tin Can Bay P-10 State School which focuses on core literacy and numeracy skills. It is designed for students in Years 7-10 who require additional support to engage in education and offers an opportunity for these students to address their barriers to success.

In particular, the Connect program aims to improve student’s literacy and numeracy skills by providing a personalised learning program specifically designed to close individual learning gaps and promote and develop lifelong learning skills.

This semester, Tin Can Bay School has been fortunate to acquire the expertise of Mr Cameron Young to facilitate our Connect program. Over the past 5 years Cameron has been involved with designing and managing a similar alternate education program servicing the Bundaberg region. His knowledge has helped to set up Connect for success.

The Connect philosophy aligns with Education Queensland which acknowledges that all students deserve a quality education, delivered by high quality teachers in an environment that is safe and supportive of individual needs. Connect allows young people to experience success whilst discovering a purpose in learning.

Tin Can Bay School is very excited to offer this new initiative and we look forward to sharing its successes with our community.
