Mysteries of History!

Today students in the OC went on an excursion to the Newcastle Museum to participate in the Mysteries of History program as the culmination of our HSIE topic Enigmas. Students were able to demonstrate their fantastic investigative and research skills to solve problems and looked at some remarkable local artefacts. We also enjoyed a visit to the Supernova exhibition and the BHP lightshow. A big thank you to Emma Best who delivered our program today. Well done to our students for their enthusiastic participation!

Tech Stars!

Congratulations to our OC students who took part in the DEC Tech Stars Challenge this term. The aim of the challenge was to create an infographic  that explained ‘why the angry birds transformed their abilities in space’. Students had to consider new names, descriptions, abilities, strengths and weaknesses. Below are examples of some of the fantastic infographics students created. Well done!
