STEM, STEAM PROJECTS
We ended last week with a very clever exhibition of STEAM from Years 5 & 6. Thank you Mrs Single, Miss Isbester, Years 5 & 6 for your display on those colourful Animals and the detailed
information on them and their habitat. You certainly played the role with those costumes. Congratulations Stage 3!!!
This week Years 3 & 4 are presenting their exhibition on Wednesday 20th from
12 to 1 p.m. They are presenting Australia's natural land forms. They have
been learning about this in Geography. Their models are very Artistic and
they certainly know their facts. Thank you Mrs Jones, Miss Giddings,
Mrs Smith, Miss Trickey and Years 3 & 4 for your hard work and beautiful
Years 1 & 2 are presenting their STEM models on Thursday 21st starting construction from 9 a.m. This stage have been learning about the Push and Pull concept in Science. So they are going to design their future Push and Pull transport for the future. Who needs Electric or Driverless cars when we have clever Stage 1 people about to show us their designing skills. Parents of this stage have been invited to work with these children. Thank you to all who volunteered and Thank you to Mrs Carr, Mrs Taylor and Years 1 & 2 for the Super Models you are about to design. I can't wait for Thursday—brush up on your design skills Parents, Mrs Gavenlock and Mr Shaw.
STEM / STEAM has certainly been quite evident in our school in Terms 1, 2 , 3. No presentations in Term 4 as it's a very busy term.
SOCKTOBER October is World Mission Month
Next term we are going to 'Sock it to Poverty' by fundraising for Catholic Mission to help some of the most needy and vulnerable children in the world have better opportunities in life and a hope-filled future. We will be asking the students to donate a gold coin to participate in a 'Crazy Sock Day' where students will wear crazy socks all over their body. What is the most creative way they can wear socks? This day will occur on October 26th. During the month we will "Pass the Sock Around" as a continuing fundraiser throughout the school and ask people to place their donations in the sock.
