To celebrate the success of the 7 English ‘Reading Circles’ programme, 7F and other classes expressed their experience through creative ventures. Ms Potter’s English class were given the challenge of creating a themed based cake to assemble in 30 minutes.
The students were enthusiastically engaged in creating incredible cakes that truly reflected the key themes and characters in the novels. The cakes were admired and shared by many other Year 7 and 8 students familiar with the narratives.
Congratulations to Lucy Baker, Emma Lamars, Jess McGill, Emma Spring and Hannah Russell who created the mermaid inspired cake after reading the novel ‘Ingo’ by Helen Dunmore. A big thank you to Mrs Mannion for her initiative, Reading Circles and her support of the classes.

This year a number of Year 7 and Year 8 students entered the Royal Australian Chemical Institute’s annual Crystal Growing Competition. The competition is judged by the largest, clearest and best shaped (sharp edged) crystal for each age group. Students have to submit the crystal and a one page report on the crystal growing process.
After a number of weeks of checking their crystals with Ms King, we have selected four of the best crystals to enter: Year 7 students Sophie Hancock, Claudia Legge, Alyssa Hastie and Georgia Fragos. The crystals will be sent in at the end of term and will be judged next month.
All students participating will receive a crystal sticker and a participation certificate. The winner(s) will receive an award and a merit certificate. We eagerly await these results!
Year 8 Humanities students participated in the annual Humanities Expo this morning, which focused on showcasing a ‘Totally Wild’ segment about an issue of concern at Bunyaville Conservation Park.
This directly aligned to our field excursion earlier in the term and our unit where we were investigating ‘Landscapes and Landforms’. Congratulations to all students who had their video revealed this morning, where topics ranged from Weeds, to Urbanisation to Feral Animals. In particular we would like to recognise the following students who were our winners on the day:
1st Place – Isabella Leung-Dias and Ella Patterson
2nd Place –Trinity Barr-Thomson, Sienna Byrne and Samantha Waldon
3rd Place – Genevieve Moore and Elyssa Schumann
Many Humanities students have been receiving awards this week, due to them clearly displaying a plethora of ‘Habits of Mind’ within the classroom. They were presented with their awards on year-level assembly, where we recognised such Habits as ‘Responding with Wonderment and Awe’, ‘Striving for Accuracy’ and ‘Thinking and Communicating with Clarity and Precision’.
Well done to all students involved in receiving a certificate this week.
To link in with the Term 2 Library theme of “Celebrating,” the library has been offering craft sessions during lunchtime.
Last week our Junior students enjoyed making “Fidget balloon characters.”
