Yesterday, Year 6 attended Callaghan College Waratah Campus and spent the day in the life of high schoolers. They participated in a variety of activities, including Science, English, Mathematics, PDHPE, Woodwork, Cross Fit, and Sport. We had a sausage sizzle lunch and got to meet other Year 6 students from our neighbouring schools. The students were a beautifully behaved group and a pleasure to take to Callaghan College. Enjoy our photos from our excursion.

Mystery Bag Challenge

This week we were treated to a terrific taster lesson from the staff and students from Callaghan College Waratah Technology Campus. Our class took part in a STEM Challenge which involved designing and making a structure to launch a pom pom using only the materials provided in a mystery bag. We had a great time and there were lots of creative and clever designs. Well done to everyone for the enthusiasm, great team work and effort.
