Thanks to the Inland Lighthouse Network (ILN), fifty Year 7 students from eleven primary schools in the Central Wheatbelt
are using online resources to complete the history curriculum and develop their technological skills.
Wongan Hills District High School Principal Ilona Jachmann said the history program, which began earlier this year, was fundamental
to the successful transition of the students into secondary school.
“The expectation for all students is to have in depth knowledge of the history curriculum, especially Year 7 students,”
Mrs Jachmann said.
“These students need to develop the necessary skills for successful transition to high school.
“The course has had the added major advantage of providing some social contact for these students, who are the only
Year 7 students in their school, and fosters existing peer relationships.”.. more
