Year 5 High School Day

Cooking, coding, PE, music and more! Our Year 5s had a fantastic time at their high school experience day at Callaghan College Waratah Campus.

Gifts from the Gods

A huge thank you to Karen Eastwood and Alex Wegner who delivered their new workshop Gifts from the Gods with the OC today. We had a great time learning about Greek Gods, Goddesses and myths as well as the importance of identifying our strengths and sharing our own stories.

Wooooooo!!!

Wooooooooo!!! Today the OC attended a special event at the University of Newcastle – Woo, New & You! We listened to lots of experts in the field of maths, science and STEM, with the highlight being an inspirational talk from Australian of the Year and teaching superstar Eddie Woo. Eddie’s presentation was titled Reimagining Maths and focused on the ideas of mathematics being about playfulness, exploration and teamwork. We got to meet Eddie, who was incredibly generous with his time, and all received a copy of his amazing book Woo’s Wonderful World of Maths! 

Shadow Puppet Fun!

Today we received a visit from Mitch (Nashi’s Dad) from Curious Legends in preparation for a special outdoor performance this Saturday evening of The Tiger, The Holyman and The Jackal. Students enjoyed making shadow puppets and testing them out in the dark. All the details are in the flyer below for anyone interested in coming along on Saturday night. Thanks Mitch!
