Last term we studied the novel Rain May and Captain Daniel. A story about friendship, identity and dealing with change. Throughout the novel, Rain May and her mum, communicate by writing fridge poetry to each other. To conclude our novel study, students created their own fridge poetry based on the themes of the novel. Enjoy! (Click to enlarge)
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.

Today saw the culmination of our annual Thinkfest program! Students showcased their talents, creativity and problem-solving skills at our host school New Lambton South PS. It’s been a huge amount of work: making props, writing scripts, maintaining a visual diary, painting backdrops, having fun and making lots of mess! Our efforts were rewarded today with a win for our English team, Best Visual Diary, Highly Commended for Enthusiasm and Best Backdrop. Our History team received awards for Best Prop and Best Backdrop. Our Maths team received Best Skit Solution and Science also received Best Backdrop. Congratulations to Ember who was recognised as Best ‘Thinkfester’ for her outstanding effort, leadership and contribution to this year’s program. Well done everyone – a terrific result!
