Here are some more snaps from our Hands on Science Day. It was a fascinating and much anticipated occasion. In the photos here you can see the students churning cream into butter using a variety of ‘simple machines’. Can you guess what they are?

On Thursday 21st May, we had Debbie from Hands On Science come to our school as a part of our Inquiry investigation into inventions. The theme of her visit was ‘Simple Machines’ -what they can be – how they work and why we have them. She displayed a range pulley’s, levers and cogs along with batteries and motors, eggbeaters and dice – and importantly, how they can combine to make simple machines.

HI-SENSE ARENA – GYMNASTICS -WOW!

On Friday 22 IMG_8817May the Middle School had the good fortune to go to Hi Sense Arena to watch the National Championships for all underage groups up toU18’s – as the competitors battled it out to qualify for the Squad that gets to go to Beijing in 2016. {One of a number of comps before that are selected}.

It was quite an amazing day and a big thank you to our Phys.Ed teacher Mrs.Kay for organizing it. Also to our 4 Mums {Tina and  Franca from Middle C}. It was a day where the students got to observe gymnastics at the highest level as well as participate in a number of gymnastics activities.

They learnt how to warm up – balance one leg – use gym equipment and bend and stretch their bodies into some amazing shapes and positions. A wonderful day and lots of ideas for activities we can do back at school .
