LRC Make A Wish Activity At Christmas

To get everybody into the spirit of Christmas, the LRC organised a ‘Make A Book Wish’ reading activity. Students who borrow books can make a wish for a new book of their choice. Look at the fantastic Christmas tree  in the LRC with lots of book wishes on the specially designed tags! Congratulations to the students whose wishes have come true – Chloe Herminjard (7B2), Noa Lane (7K2), Lachlan Leung (7M1), Daniella Wu (8K1), Emi Hayashi (8K2), Mayu Tanaka (9S2), Paulina Behrens (9C1). 

The student winners from various year groups are getting together to discuss how the activity can be enriched next year when they come to pick up their gifts. The whole process is inspiring and enjoyable at the festive time of the year. 

Merry Christmas & Happy Reading

Year 7 Science

Year 7 students are becoming real scientists! The Year 7 students explored a range of scientific concepts, including surface tension of water, density, solubility, melting points, and chemical change through the cool experiments like making slime, elephant toothpaste, rainbow measuring cylinders, and bath bombs. We ended the term with a mini-assessment!. In our last session, we made gingerbread cookies to get into the Christmas spirit. Congratulations to all Year 7 scientists for getting your certificates! We hope you all enjoyed the experiences and our lovely website too. HERE is the link to see more photos!
