MARS ROVERS

 

 

 

 

To build our Mars Rovers, we became designers and engineers. we had to build them using different varieties of pasta. That’s right just Pasta! We were given a budget of  $60,000,000. We could use as much pasta and lollies as you can afford. We had to be very careful that we did not blow the budget.  These are our Rovers.

We tested our Rovers. They did ROLL unaided but Pasta is very difficult to work with. we showed a lot of resilience in making and testing.

 

                                     

National History Challenge

At Monday’s assembly, we congratulated the following students for entering this year’s National History Challenge: Harlan (5/6SC), Lucas F (5/6SC), Caitlin (5/6SC), Oscar (5/6SC), Hannah (5/6MAL), Nicholas (5/6MAL), Mercedes (5/6SC) and Ethan (5/6M). Not shown: Jacinta (5/6SC) and David (5/6SC). 

It was also exciting to hear that Caitlin, Jacinta, Olivia, Oscar, Ethan and Nicholas qualified to present their entries at the State Finals with the opportunity of making it to the National Finals.

An excellent result for the students at St Charles Borromeo!

A special thanks to Mrs Sirianni who coordinated and supported students with their entries.

Donation to Vanuatu

A large number of our school uniforms were donated to boys and girls in Vanuatu. The people here were recently hit by a severe cyclone and our donation was greatly appreciated.

Well done to Marni (Flick and Patrick’s mother) for organising this and thank you to Heather Prior for transporting and coordinating the donation (as well as sending through these pictures). 

Book Week Fun!

We are having so much fun with our Book Week activities this week! 

Today the Foundation and Year 1/2 students created their own Mopoke class book. They loved the book Mopoke by Phillip Bunting so much that they thought of their own Mopokes. 

Some ideas of new Mopokes are; Dogpoke, Pizzapoke, Dancepoke, Rockstarpoke and funpoke.
