  • 0855   p1    French – Bronwyn
  • 0940   p2    Integrated Studies –  students to learn about the two houses of the Federal Parliament.  The Lower House is the House of Representatives.  Members of this house represent geographical locations across Australia, approximately 100,000 people.  The Primeminister must be from this house.  The Lower House is modelled after the Westminster system of Great Britain.  The Upper House is called the Senate, or the State’s House.  It is modelled on the American Sentate.  There are the same number of senators for each state.   They are supposed to allow the smaller states a degree of power in Canberra, but our party system makes this difficult to happen.
  • 1025   p3    Literature –  Students to listen ‘The Hobbit’  Tony
  • The students have to listen to the first two chapters of this story and be able to recall the main events.  Compare and Contrast ‘The Hobbit’ to ‘The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe’.  The similarities, the differences.  Compare and contrast Lewis and Tolkien.  Similarities are they were both professors of the English Language and were colleagues and best friends.  Both wrote successful children’s books.  Both used mythological creatures in their stories.  Both invented new worlds, and even geography.  Differences.  Tolkien didn’t believe in messages for children, even though he was a devout Catholic.  Lewis used his stories to tell about his new faith in Jesus.  Both men grew apart, and stopped being friends after their successful careers as writers.
