Pi, Pizza & Party Time!

This week we celebrated the end of the year with our class party and secret Santa. Thank you to everyone who brought in some tasty treats to share. As part of the OC tradition, we had our annual Pi Challenge – a competition to see who can accurately recite the most digits of Pi. Blade did a super job with 10, Sam came up with 15, Grayson did an impressive 22, Oscar smashed it with 121 and Noah K absolutely blew us away by doing 201! Wow! Very impressive! (I can do 3.14… that’s it). Naturally, we celebrated with pie.

Walk a Mile Koori Style

Yesterday our Year 6 boys took a stand against domestic violence and violence in our community by joining in the Walk a Mile Koori Style march. We joined with many other schools across the Hunter and made our way through Newcastle streets to King Edward Park where we made a solemn oath to ‘never be violent, never be silent’. At the park we enjoyed mountains of food, drink, lollies, ice blocks and other treats while we saw bands, including the really rockin’ Police Band, and traditional Indigenous dance performances. Thank you Ms Chapman and Mr Slade for organising this event for our boys.

OC Solar Stars!

Congratulations to our awesome OC who had a great day at the Mini EV Festival yesterday! A huge thank you to Steve (Blade & Fin’s dad) who helped us build and solder our carts throughout the term. Well done to team Lightning Llamas: Celeste, Raquel and Liana, whose cart placed 1st in the Pursuit Race and to team Eclipse: Eleanor, Amie, Eliza, Emma, Ember, whose cart placed 2nd in the Solar Sprint Race. We also brought home trophies for best team spirit and enthusiasm and 2 for engineering design and innovation. Well done, everyone! Click below to see our photos (and turn the sound up to 11!)

CEP Digital Media Festival

Thank you to everyone who came along to our CEP Digital Media Festival last week. The event was a great success, with a turnout of over 2,500 community members. Our fundraising stall – popcorn and slushies – raised close to $1000, which goes back towards supporting our creative and performing arts programs. 

Our film, The Other Side of the Door, written and created by our students, was enthusiastically received and has helped further cement the festival as a highlight on participating schools’ creative and performing arts calendar.
