Well done to Christopher, Angelo, Patrick, Alex, Chiara and Khrisha on organising another successful term of LEGO clubs. LEGO Club will return next term – Friday’s at lunchtime.
A big thanks to Aimee, Piper, Stephanie and (in the distance) Flick who regularly after school make sure all of our devices are returned and charged.
Yesterday in STEM we created vehicles and investigated forces such as pushing, pulling and gravity. We had some very creative cars made. Lucia had a design that amazed everyone in the beginning by going way further than any other car. She held the crown right until the end when Christian and James designed a car that went just that extra millimetre further.
Congratulations to Thomas who won this week’s BeyBlade Championship and to Alex who came second.
Images from today’s Foundation and Year 3/4 dance showcase. A fantastic show! Well done Preps and Year 3/4s, and Mrs Callea for putting it all together.
It was too cold and windy to go outside today, but that meant I got to enjoy some chicken, chips, a doughnut and a drink in Foundation today at lunch. The best thing about this takeaway shop was that they give you the money to spend. I wish there were more shops like this.
Congratulations to Alex (5/6) who triumphed in the BeyBlade Championship and to Xander (3/4) who was runners-up.
Well done to Alex who organised and coordinated the competition. Both Alex and Xander are in Orange Dingos and won 30 points for their team.
Congratulations to Alexander L (5/6SC) for organising a BeyBlade Championship. Here is the knockout fixture. The competition will be held on Monday, 29 July at lunchtime. The winner will score 20 points for their House Team.
Today in Foundation, we got out the iPads and had fun taking photos. We discussed how we seek permission before taking photos of others and how we try to center our subject. Here are some of the photos taken.
While we wait in anticipation of the points allocated at our recent athletic trials, here are the house points as they currently stand.
Who hasn’t enjoyed hearing Mr Maloney singing a tune over the PA system every Friday at lunch?
Maybe the neighbours, but putting that aside, what song would you like to hear Mr Maloney sing in term 3?

St Charles have begun well. Olivia just scored a goal. St Charles 20 v Doncaster 0.
There is sunshine at the track and great performances on show.

This year, the Year 5/6s have used and investigated gears a number of times in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). This week, however, we had a close look at “crown gears” to make a three brush street sweeper.
