We have a team of students participating in the Huon and Channel Cross Country event at Huonville tomorrow. We wish these students all the best for the day.
We farewell Willow and Fynn and their parents this week as the family undertakes an adventure to Germany. We will keep in touch and look forward to hearing about their experiences.
Currently we only have breakfast club running on a Wednesday morning it would be great to have some volunteers to fill the gaps on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. It is a great way to get to know our students and helps them start the day in a great way.
The arborists have had a tidy up in our Bush Playground and we have a few tonne of firewood on offer. A wood splitter would be handy for some larger rounds but there is also quite a bit of limb wood. If you are interested contact the office on 62666240.
Grade 2/3 have been investigating the properties of water and how we use it.
As a scientific inquiry into how water behaves, we constructed a walking rainbow using seven cups, water, food colouring, a spoon and paper towel. We poured a small amount of water into every second cup and added different food colouring to the water.
We stirred it well and then folded our paper towels so that every cup had two paper towel ends in them. The water very quickly began to travel up the paper towels using a capillary action.
The empty cups had water trickling down the paper towels and into them. Over the next two days the colours blended. We will display our rainbow somewhere around the office area for everyone to see.
