Over the past 12 months, D7 students have teamed up with Mrs Cottrill, Mrs Houley, Ms Rankmore and the sustainability grant to update our garden area outside the D7 classroom.
The D7 garden area has a new greenhouse, thanks to Mr Keeler and his student helpers: Read more »
This term D7 students have commenced the SWSP with excellent weather conditions. Each week students have been practising their water safety skills, such as treading water, floating and basic introduction of breaststroke. Some students have progressed to an advanced level of swimming which involves swimming the length of the pool, freestyle and an introduction of diving techniques.
This term the D7 class have been practising tirelessly on their ukuleles and singing in order to participate in a concert for the residents of Cooinda. Students performed several songs on their ukuleles and sang a range of Christmas songs and old time favourites. Students were well received by the audience and staff at Cooinda.
Dedicated Music teacher, Nancy Doolan, accompanied students along with SLSO Vanessa Houley and Narelle Pfieffer, who drove the bus.
The students are now known as ‘The Rising Stars’. Not only have they performed at Cooinda, but they have also participated in a show case concert at the High School in Term 3. Students have shown great enthusiasm and will continue to learn new songs in the New Year.
See below some video highlights of their performance! Read more »
So far this term, D2 students have been testing out their up-cycling skills in Technology and have revamped some sad looking chairs, transforming them into groovy designer pieces!
Everyone made their little contribution, the chairs look amazing, and…there are requests from some staff members to fix theirs too!
Students in D1 Science with Miss Rankmore had the opportunity to work on a mini STEM hands-on project called ‘Circuit Scribe’ this week. In this project, students used a conductive silver pen, power source (mini battery), a slider and an LED light to make a circuit. When the conductive pen was used correctly to join the parts and complete the circuit, the LED lights lit up. This follows up the unit on Electricity the students studied this semester.
