Students decorated their baby eggs

School life: Egg-citing project for Calder High students

Miss Frankland said, year 12 students spent a week nurturing and acting as a primary caregiver for an ‘egg baby’. This challenge was to form part of the attachment topic that Year 12 psychology students have just started. The hope was that after spending a week with their ‘egg baby’ most of them would have formed some kind of attachment and wouldn’t want to smash it after the week was over. Most eggs were cared for really well and each student had their ‘egg baby’ with them every single day, some even arranged ‘sleep overs’ if they knew they were unable to care for their egg that night. Students will be able to refer to what they experienced with their egg baby to topics within the attachment unit.
