    • Tullow (and Science labs)
    • Built in 1961-1967.

  • Take note of all Spatial Concepts and record them in your notes


Lesson 7 - 9

Complete Assignment on St Joseph's College.
(You may share your answers and help each other, but each person is to submit their own work).

Tuesday 22/2 P2 library lesson
Research change at St. Joseph’s since it’s foundation.
Find old photos, articles that refer to particular buildings and the way the school was run.
  • You could look up old school magazines for the last 10 years, 7,6,5,3,2,1,0
  • find a book on the history of Echuca,
  • or ask Sr. Margaret
Copy the photos you have found using the camera in your laptop
  • use PhotoBooth and flip the photo so that they are not backwards
  • past these to a St. Joseph’s spatial diagram (download from wiki)
  • alter your spatial diagram so that it reflects the time in the photograph
  • list the differences that you are aware of between then and now under your spatial diagram.
  • you should have one spatial diagram for each year you have gathered evidence for.

Include answers to the above questions.

Wednesday 23 P4 library lesson
Working in groups, find the answers to the questions on the wiki about the changes at St. Joseph’s College, by...
  • Researching on the internet
  • asking staff
  • emailing staff
  • looking through books on the history of Echuca.
  • Alter your spatial diagram so that it reflects the time in the photograph
  • list the differences that you are aware of between then and now under your spatial diagram.
  • you should have one spatial diagram for each year you have gathered evidence for.


Thursday 24th P2 library lesson
  • Choose two of the periods you have been researching.
  • Show your understanding of how the spatial concepts of the time have led to the changes you have observed.
  • Consider the information you found.
  • Using the SPATIAL CONCEPTS sheet identify how particular factors may have affected others and led to the decisions for change at St Josephs College (or its location). For example: in the late 1800’s Echuca was a transport hub, with paddle-steamers bringing goods from all along the Murray Darling Basin to the newly built train line to the Port of Melbourne. With transport came jobs, with jobs came people, with increasing population came the need for services. Location, scale, distance, region, movement, spatial association and change in these over time all played a part in Echuca being considered a dynamic environment at the time.
  • If you need a refresher, re-read pages 1-16 of your text.
