College Celebrates HaSS Week

Throughout week three, students engaged in a diverse array of activities and lessons designed to celebrate the richness of topics within Humanities and Social Science. From thought-provoking discussions to hands-on activities, this was an amazing opportunity for our students to explore the fascinating subjects of history, geography, economics, and much more.

Flag & Shield Designs
Designing your own flag is important because it represents your identity, values, and aspirations. It’s a symbol of unity and pride for a group or community. Creating a flag allows you to visually communicate who you are and what you stand for, fostering a sense of belonging.

The game “jacks or knuckles” typically involves bouncing a small rubber ball and picking up small objects, often metal jacks, between bounces. Possibly dating back to ancient Greece or Egypt. Jacks evolved over time as a recreational activity for children, reflecting historical norms and societal values surrounding play and leisure.

Where in the world?
‘Where in the world’ is an engaging activity where staff members provided a series of travel photos, and students tried to guess the location shown in each image. It was a fun way for students to test their geography knowledge and learn about new places.

Coits, also known as quoits, are an ancient game where players toss metal or rubber rings at a target, aiming to encircle it or land closest to it. Historically, coits were popular in many cultures, providing leisure and entertainment, reflecting the social pastimes of different societies across history.

Mummy Wrap
Mummification, a method of preserving the dead practiced by ancient civilizations like the Egyptians, is significant in history because it reflects beliefs about the afterlife, social hierarchy, and religious practices.

Apple Bobbing
Apple bobbing is believed to have originated from ancient Celtic or Roman customs, possibly linked to harvest celebrations or love divination. It evolved into a Halloween tradition, symbolising fun and spooky festivities.
