During Week 9 and 10 of Term 1, Year 7 students worked in teams to design improvements to the View Road Reserve that would enhance the liveability of Burnie. Each student wrote a persuasive paragraph about their improvements and created a 3D model of their ideas in Minecraft. These were displayed on posters and presented in the Chanel Atrium. 

A dedicated group of student volunteers and Burnie City Councillor, Dr Amina Keygan, formed the judging panel to decide which team had the best ideas in each category. 

The winners were awarded a certificate and small prize at a Year Level Assembly on Wednesday 11 May.
