Euka News – September 2022

Euka Course Updates:

We have some exciting uplifts starting to be seen in the Euka programs from Grade 7 – 10. The interactive questions are providing a wonderful opportunity for instant feedback, giving students the chance to revise their work as they go.

The great news is that the Euka team have started the planning and development of similar functionality for Grades 3 – 6. Keep your eyes open for that in 2023.

The Grade 11 and 12 program will be open for enrolments early November. As always priority will be given to current Grade 10 Euka students. Feel free to email in to have your place reserved for 2023.

For students in Grades 9 & 10, you will now be discovering the New Euka electives! Over 120 fully curriculum aligned electives including everything from the textile technology to Marine Studies to Automotive Technology.

Students of the Month

There has been soooo many great posts over the past month, the outstanding learning experiences have been inspiring and exciting to see. We have gathered a few to celebrate this month as “Students of the Month”.

Jaxon from Year 7, completed a diorama of a scene from Walkabout. He chose the plane crash. What a fantastic depiction of a scene from the Novel. Great work!

Gabby had some Japanese art pictures of the 36 Views of Mount Fuji by Hokusai including the Great Wave print. She was so excited to learn more about it in Japanese History this week.

Harry tweaked his island a little and decided to make it using paper mache.
It’s been so good seeing him get his passion for learning back again.
Loving being able to adapt his learning around him and his needs.

This artwork is 3D. It is amazing how Ebony has gone above and beyond the basic instructions provided
Grade 3 week 9 (Janine)

A fantastic job by M. Haseeb on his GRADE 7 Diorama of a memorable scene from “Walkabout”. Well done
