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.

Year 6 High School Taster Lessons

Well done to all the Year 6 students who accompanied me to Callaghan Campus Waratah on Friday to participate in taster lessons in preparation for the transition to high school. We had a great day participating in a variety of lessons including English, dance, science and woodwork. Well done to everyone for their great behaviour and enthusiasm.

A Tasty Transition

Today Year 6 and I had a terrific time attending Taster lessons at Callaghan College Waratah Technology Campus. We participated in several sessions including art, metal work, science and hospitality. Students also enjoyed a free sausage sizzle lunch! Well done to our students, who participated enthusiastically (lots of positive feedback from the high school teachers) and displayed exemplary behaviour throughout the day. Lots of great photos below!

Students/families interested in obtaining a placement in the 2016 High Achievers class need to return their applications to me by the end of next week.

Taster Lessons

Today our senior students received a treat from staff at Callaghan College Waratah Technology Campus, as part of the taster lesson program.  Students took part in a vigorous crossfit training session where they had to complete a variety of exercises including squats, burpies, a run, push-ups and skipping. We then participated in a visual art lesson that involved using a wooden block, wire and foot stocking to create an interesting sculpture. A big thanks to Mr McGavern and Miss May for joining us today and providing fun lessons for our students.
