Engage in Asia

Asia is now the region whose current emergence is one of history’s greatest catalysts for worldwide change.  Australians require new skills, knowledge and understanding related to the Asian region and Australia’s engagement with Asia in order to meet the challenges and opportunities of living and working in the twenty first century.  The countries of the Asian region are our closest neighbours and major trading partners.  They represent the cultural heritage of a growing number of Australians and their rich traditional and contemporary cultures provide opportunities to our social, creative and intellectual development.

 

At Pakenham Consolidated School we want to enable our students to develop a regional and global mindset and skill set that will enable them to build a creative, prosperous and socially cohesive Australia.


As well as whole school topics based around Asian studies, we also endeavour to celebrate student learning through the use of open nights and celebratory nights involving our local community.
