On Thursday, 9 June, Year 9 Science students hosted a Science Fair for all students in the Senior School as well as Year 6 students from the Junior School, as well as Teachers and we even had a few parents drop in. The Science Fair was a great opportunity for our Year 9 students to demonstrate some of the skills and knowledge they have acquired during their Key Stage 3 Science careers. The Science Fair was a huge success which both amazed and entertained our visitors with glowing liquids; fluorescent jelly and neon lights; “Screaming Gummy Bears”; exploding volcanoes, and even cloud formation in a bottle! Students had fun igniting gas bubbles and making “Elephant Toothpaste” and even sampling some delightful chocolates and strawberries (all in the name of Science of course). The most popular project that really had the highest WOW Factor was “Walking on Liquid”. Yes, you read correctly, a specially created liquid allowed students to walk across the surface!
Year 3 visited the farm in Coin on Thursday 26 May. Everyone had a great time and we all had lots of fun. There were different activities which we all took part in. We were able to pick lemons off the tree and make our own lemonade. It tasted delicious. We were able to ride on a donkey called chocolate! Some of us guided the donkey around the track. We all enjoyed archery although not many of us hit the target!!! We were able to see all the animals. Some were very smelly but the peacocks showed off their beautiful feathers.
