What is Community? ATAR Psychology Incursion Term 3

This year the Year 12 ATAR Psychology class were visited by PhD candidate Jess Gilbert and Associate Professor Lynne Roberts from Curtin University. They spoke about community and establishing a sense of community, which is part of the syllabus.

Jess gave an interactive and engaging presentation on her study involving womens' sense of community in a FIFO environment, and gave our students the opportunity to assess their own sense of community at school and in their home neighbourhood. The students gained valuable insights into the aspects required to build a successful community and were able to ask questions about studying Psychology at university. It was a thoroughly worthwhile and enjoyable incursion, and we look forward to welcoming Jess and Lynne back to Woodvale Secondary College again!
