In honour of National Science Week this week’s Thinking Thursday will have a Science spin.
The question for the students is ‘what will our world be like in 2100?’
Are we on our way to a futuristic world ruled by technology, or are we on our way to destruction?
What will daily life be like? What common place things of today will become obsolete?
What power do we have to shape our future Earth?
Today there are two statements for you to consider. You can respond to one or both of these statements.
Most communication is just meaningless noise.
The way we communicate determines the quality of our lives.
Can you pick out specific elements of this image that carry meaning?
What is your overall impression? What do you think the message of this picture is?
A challenge for you all this week. Take a look at this picture and then write down three separate statements. What does this image make you think? Where do your thoughts go when looking at this? Write down the first three thoughts you have. Perhaps one of them may be the beginning of your next great piece of writing!

A simple, three word quote for you to think about today.
What do these words mean and why are they said on Anzac Day and Remembrance Day?
“Lest we forget.”
Can you think of anyone you know, perhaps even yourself, who has faced a challenge and grown as a result?
Do you agree with this statement? Can you perhaps challenge it?
Where else does this statement take you? What does it lead you to think about once you’ve taken it its basic message?
