MAD Week

Make A Difference (MAD) Week

“Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
Albert Einstein

Our annual Make a Difference Week (MAD Week) is held in the final week of Term 2.

What is MAD Week?

MAD Week is a unique and exciting week when we celebrate learning at Cornish College, with our families joining us for the annual MAD Night@Cornish on the Thursday evening.

Students, parents, staff and visitors all work together to explore sustainability through inquiry and build a sense of community through class, group and multi-age activities. The whole school timetable is reinvented for the week enabling students and teachers to collaborate in new and exciting ways.

Ultimately MAD Week is a culmination of the learning and experiences our students have immersed themselves in during the first semester of the school year. It is a time to highlight our motto of ‘Make a Difference’.

MAD Week 2016

This year’s focus was Visible Values – Urban Projects. This brought together our Rings of Sustainability as we thought about how we demonstrate our school and community values and in particular, how our built environment connects with our personal, social-cultural and natural sustainability.

We took time to consider the rapid growth of Cornish College and how we can create learning and play spaces that represent our values. Together, students and staff created a music garden, Frog Bogs, and a new playground amongst other things.

We welcome our community

Parents, extended family, friends and interested community members joined us for our MAD Night@Cornish to celebrate learning together.
