During week 10, term 3, years R-7 students focussed their learning on Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), with a final presentation of their work at an ‘Expo’ on Thursday afternoon.
It was fantastic to see such imagination and creativity across all year levels and the students’ enthusiasm to present their ideas was awesome. We were blown away by the variety of problems and solutions the students came up with. There was a real buzz about the place during the Expo as students shared their learning with peers, other levels of school, parents and grandparents. A huge thanks to the Primary staff who fully embraced this learning opportunity for their students.
Our recent Dance Choreographic Competition was a magnificent night of high energy dance precision. Dance students from primary and high school presented their choreography in various dance genres including hip hop, jazz, tap and contemporary. This was our 3rd choreographic competition and each year our students’ confidence and abilities have grown. Thank you to Mr Jayson Smart and Mr Andrew Rusk for organising the event and to Ms Tamara Tane who assisted on the night.
