Suitcases and plants for ‘Amira’s suitcase’

Amira’s Suitcase Created by Ruyton Girls' School

At Ruyton Girls’ School, some of our Year 7 students took on the challenge of planning a workshop with Year 2 students to create a response to ‘Amira’s suitcase’. Their idea was to print a suitcase template for students to decorate and then draw a plant on the inside. Our student leaders read the book, taking it in turns to read a section each. They then led a discussion on what kinds of plants the Year 2s could draw, with thought given to friendship, kindness, and teamwork. It was a wonderful opportunity for our Year 7s to demonstrate leadership skills and plan and evaluate a workshop. The Year 2s were very excited to work with the older students, and worked hard on their drawings.
