Awesome Ethan!

Star of the Week Profile

Hi my name is Ethan and I like sport, movies and playing with my brother. I joined the OC this year from Morpeth and have made lots of friends at Tighes Hill. I have a brother, a sister and a cat named Basil. I enjoy swimming, soccer and basketball. I look forward to being in Year 6 next year. I would love to be elected as a school leader.  ‘

Meet Dr Graeme

Today we had our first visit from our class scientist Dr Graeme Puxty as part of the Scientists in Schools program. Dr Graeme, who works at the CSIRO at Mayfield, talked with students all about the important research and work he does in his position. We learned all about the greenhouse effect and some of the ideas and projects scientists are working on to achieve sustainability. Dr Graeme also showed us a prototype of a very small transparent solar panel that they are developing at the CSIRO. Very cool!
