Year 7.4 – Grateful to live in Perth

Throughout this term in iLearn the boys in 7.4 have been using critical thinking to explore what features make somewhere a great place to live. We explored factors such as environment, stability, health care, culture, infrastructure and education. The students and their teachers unanimously agreed that Perth is a fantastic place to live. The boys also recognised that they are very fortunate to be students at Scotch College.

We also explored the impact that COVID-19 has had in many different countries. We soon realised that Perth is possibly one of the best places to be in the entire world right now. Tragically, some people in our Perth community have died and there are many people who have been economically impacted and have lost jobs; it is a challenging time for many. However when we compare the impacts of COVID-19 on our community, and the disruption it has caused to our daily life, to many other places around the world, we feel extremely lucky to live in such an amazing place.
