SCOTCH OAKBURN COLLEGE
In 2018, Scotch Oakburn College implemented SOC2City #Y7, an innovative, interdisciplinary learning program for its Year 7 curriculum. SOC2City #Y7 is a practical, real-life learning experience that also addresses compulsory aspects of the Year 7 curriculum. Fifteen sites were identified around the Launceston CBD for redevelopment, and each group of students was allocated one site for renewal. Students had to decide how they could influence and improve the livability of their particular site and thus shape the perception of Launceston as a city of the future. A central idea was that their designated urban renewal site should provide rate-payers with the services and facilities needed to support and enhance their lives.
