righto - i just realised we could use our time at school to do some good in a cause we feel passionate about and call it learning as well!
What do you think?
For those of you wanting to, you could change the focus of your Hamilton Inquiry to be specifically about something you feel strongly about. If you aren't feeling excited about your essential or 'foundation' questions perhaps you might like to come up with something different.
Could we take up the challenge of finding out what Hamilton is doing to look after its huge stray cat population?
Can we make a difference? Who is responsible? What do you think should or could be done?
IS there a social action we could take? What is the best way for us to get our message to an audience? Who should that audience be? The Hamilton City Council? Our school? The Riverside Cluster? The newspaper? Can we educate others? If so, what should our message be?
Post all the ideas you have. State questions that need answering. Propose ways of finding out information. State what you would like to do once you have done your research - you can always refine your project along the way.
go for it!
