Over the last 2 weeks our Principal Matthew has been helping run some project based learning lectures with 3rd year Nursing Students at Adelaide Uni. These lectures have focused on adolescent mental health and working with young people when they present to hospital or are admitted to hospital. It was great for him to work alongside Lecture-Course Coordinator Elyce who used to work at WCH and Nurse Consultant Mel who is a part of the Youth Cancer Service. ... See MoreSee Less
Teachers Takuto and Rebekah, and curriculum support staff member Latisha, visited Lumination’s new Learning Lab at their Thebarton campus.
We received training on how to use Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) using our Education Kit from Lumination. We learnt how to incorporate this technology into our teaching practice in ways that align with the Australian Curriculum and specific learning outcomes. Using this immersive, hands-on approach to teaching allows students to participate in a collaborate learning experience, while also breaking down the barriers of the classroom.
Our next goal is to implement VR and AR teaching practices across all three Hospital School campuses, as well as using it in our learning online sessions with students who are offsite.
This year Hospital School SA has a focus on clear messaging that represent our students and shows our young people they are welcome, safe and supported. Today we acknowledged our Supporting Improved Mental Health in Schools Program collaboration with the Mallee Ward staff. Matthew presented the T-shirts to the team today. ... See MoreSee Less

Across all three campuses, our HSSA staff and students celebrated Trans Day of Visibility, a day to recognise the diverse experiences and achievements of transgender, non-binary, and gender diverse people, while also raising awareness of discrimination.
We educated students on gender identity and fluidity, pronouns, and acceptance through picturebooks and learning activities, all while wearing our 'ALLY' and 'Protect Trans Kids' tees. At the Women's and Children's campus, staff on the Mallee ward showed their support through their colourful outfits.
While today is an opportunity to amplify the voices of transgender, non-binary, and gender diverse people, HSSA understands the importance of cultivating an inclusive and supportive environment every day of the year for all students and staff, regardless of their gender identity or expression.
Transgender Day of Visibility is an annual international celebration of transgender pride, recognising transgender, non-binary, and gender diverse experiences and achievements. It is dedicated to raising awareness of discrimination faced by transgender, non-binary, and gender diverse people worldwide, as well as a celebration of their contributions to society.
Thursday 31st March is an opportunity to amplify the voices of trans, non-binary, and gender diverse people.
