Warwick students go mad for the Middle Ages

THE Warwick High School library will go through a time warp tomorrow night as it transforms into a realm of medieval madness.

Year 8 students have been enthusiastically preparing for the event, Medieval Madness Across the Globe, that celebrates what they have learnt about history in the classroom.

Acting Head of Social Science Leisa Betts said the night was a chance to showcase the students' work.

"It is our chance to reward students for enthusiastically participating in their academic work," Mrs Betts said.

"This celebration allows students to share their school experiences and successes with their families and the wider community."

The medieval world has been the focus of their historical journey and students have immersed themselves in this intriguing period of time.

Their time travel experience has encompassed Medieval Europe, Japan under the Shoguns and the Spanish conquest of the Americas.

Each student has created an Emakimino (picture scroll) about a significant individual from Shogunate Japan.

Some students have used material or paper for their scroll, while others have designed a PowerPoint. Students have created origami and Aztec masks.

"All of these amazing examples of student work will be on display at our Medieval evening and there will be prizes awarded to students who have produced outstanding work," she said.

The night kicks off from 5-6.30pm tomorrow night at the school library.
