    During the middle session, regional groups will discuss and draft a new preamble. The program will conclude with the sharing of these preambles and the reaching of consensus on a draft preamble.

     

    Following registration, pre-reading materials, a draft program and a weblink to support participation will be communicated to the school contact. 

    Students studying Humanities and Social Science subjects are well placed to participate in the convention.

    From each school team, one student can nominate to be a delegate to the NSCC held each year in March. Each candidate will present a three-minute speech on a constitutional issue. 

    Is it time to change the preamble to the Australian Constitution? What should a new preamble say? As a context for your argument, consider our history, our aspirations and the values that bring us together.

    Participating students will elect Queensland's delegates for the NSCC.

    Note for 2021, the non-state school contribution fee will not be charged as the General convention will be online.

    To register visit the Queensland schools constitutional conventions.

    For all enquiries please email Queensland.SCC@qed.qld.gov.au

    Another important day coming up recognises the importance of helping students to understand how they can help the environment. The motto for this year’s World Environment Day on June 5th is Reimagine. Recreate. Restore. It is obviously aimed at the younger generation: “ This is our moment. We cannot turn back time. But we can grow trees, green our cities, re-wild our gardens, change our diets and clean up rivers and coasts. We are the generation that can make peace with nature. Let’s get active, not anxious. Let’s be bold, not timid.” Is your school publicising this for all our young citizens? Perhaps a June 5th Assembly?

    World Environment Day: June 5th - https://www.worldenvironmentday.global/. This website Home page begins with a Game which asks participants to choose an ecosystem and pledge the action they will take to help restore it. This site explains the importance of ecosystems: https://www.un.org/en/observances/environment-day, and how every little action helps. This can also include citizen science activities of a more ongoing nature.

You may be aware that the revised curriculum for HaSS has strengthened the integration of the cross-curriculum priority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures in its new draft.

     Cool burns: http://www.watarrkafoundation.org.au/blog/a boriginal-fire-management-what-is-coolburning: The practice involves lighting low fires in small areas on foot, with matches or, traditionally, with fire sticks. These fires are closely monitored, ensuring that only the underbrush is burnt. Cool Burns not only clear areas of land, they also ensure that seeds and nutrients in the soil are not baked and destroyed. The site explains that there are many environmental and cultural benefits to using Cool Burns for the management of the land.

    Water Wisdom: Fresh water systems are fundamental to Australia’s first people who have nurtured a deep understanding of water. This series shares this knowledge through the voice of Aboriginal communities: See: https://www.abc.net.au/tveducation/program s/water-wisdom/12998608
