QMEA Energy for the Future

QMEA Energy for the Future
 
On Wednesday, 21st August, 20 year 8 students undertook the task of being national energy consultants for the day, advising many countries, including Australia, on how to effectively and efficiently utilise Energy for the Future. QMEA Energy for the Future day is usually aimed at senior students, but this year; the year 8’s were challenged with the task.
 
They were required to undertake some pre-reading (research) about their designated country, gain information and advice from leading experts in the various fields of energy and then justify their proposals for how each country should obtain and fulfil their energy needs in the future.
 
There was much debate and discussion around the ‘round tables’ regarding the positive and negative aspects of each energy source including feasibility and current energy supplies of each country. Toolooa year 8 students did not disappoint, involving themselves heavily in the discussions, asking some serious questions and deploying their debating and mitigating skills.
 
As a teacher and observer it was eye-opening and pleasing to realise that Toolooa has energy responsible, environmentally aware and forward thinking young people capable of becoming world leaders or advisors to the leaders in the future.
Congratulations to our junior students who have once again shown that they are ready to take on the world and protect our future.
