Today 6W presented a dramatic presentation at assembly on saving and protecting the Daintree Rainforest in far North Queensland. A scenario was presented whereby “Mac’s Developers” wanted to build a resort in the Daintree. The children identified the stakeholders; people, animals and plants that would be affected by the development, and put forward their opinions on the development. The Stakeholders were the developers, the Indigenous people of the area, wildlife rangers, animals, the greens, scientists, plants, residents, tourist operators and the tourists. The children did a great job and the message about saving our beautiful rainforest was well received by the rest of the children in the school. A great job 6W!
6W would love to know what you thought about their assembly!
