‘Night of the Notables’ is about transformation. Through a long and deep study of the eminent person, the learner comes to realise both the gifts and the challenges that person encountered in realising those gifts, in moving from potential to success. Learner ‘transformation’ comes through identification with that Notable. Thus we encourage the learners to speak in the first person, wear the clothes typical of that person’s life and times. The motivations, aspirations and achievements of that Notable can then serve as a transforming vector for one’s own life. Our Year 6 students spent many hours researching and preparing for their presentations of their notable figure to showcase their gifts and talents.
