2014 Hunter Manufacturing Awards

Maitland Grossmann High School has taken out the Hunter Manufacturing Awards, Excellence in Manufacturing Education category.

The school has a program for providing an integrated approach to teaching Science, technology, Engineering and Mathematics. This methodology is framed within the ME program used by several schools.

The program is about creating a path for high school students to experience and explore the career opportunities that are possible in Science and Engineering.

What set the program at Maitland Grossmann High School apart from similar rollouts is the systematic approach to social inclusion, including partnerships with the University of Wollongong to host engineering roadshows for Aboriginal students from the Hunter Region.

The school also promotes this program to students from non-English speaking backgrounds and actively encourages female students to participate.

The school has elevated the status of the program by making it part of its gifted and talented agenda.

On Monday the 25th August, an incursion called “Imagine, Create, Illustrate” was held for year 8 students to attend. The purpose of the workshop was to increase the students’ confidence and motivation in creative writing and visual expression. The students were involved in an interactive presentation by children’s writer and journalist Rob Daniel and specialist literary teacher Paula Daniel.

It was a successful day that was enjoyed by the greater majority of students who attended. Quote ‘It was entertaining and he included the audience’, ‘He was funny’. They believed it was a fun day and would recommend it for future years to attend.
