Week 7: STEM Challenges

This week our teachers introduced STEM challenges. STEM stands for Science, Technology, English and Maths.

We had two challenges that involved us working in teams. For some of us this was very difficult during the first challenge, but after reflecting on different ways to problem solve we found team work a lot easier during the second challenge.

Here are some questions we have for you.

  1. If you have done a STEM challenge before what challenges did you come across?
  2. How did you overcome those challenges?

Week 6: Sausage sizzle fundraiser

Hi bloggers... guess what?

In term three our year five and six students are going on camp! Wohooo! To fundraise for this event we are selling ice blocks and sausage sizzles every Friday. We were lucky enough to organise the first sausage sizzle alongside some of our amazing mums.

Thank you to Andrew's mum, Eshaan's mum, Paul's mum, Mrs Falefa, Ms Patel and Mr Brodie for making this fundraising opportunity possible. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Some of the amazing support crew!
