Project overview

This social enquiry project has three distinct stages:

  • Discovery is about getting to know Old St Paul’s - it involves students exploring, researching, forming connections and gaining knowledge about the landscape, history and community of Old St Paul’s.
  • What's Their Story involves connecting with and learning from the community, by engaging with individuals and organisations that have an interest in Old St Paul’s. Students listen to and compare the different perspectives of various community groups.
  • What’s My Story is where students reflect on their own personal perspective of the value and significance of Old St Paul’s, re-imagining the future, and presenting this future vision to the class and community.
