Today our "Energy" topic got underway with 'hands-on-experiments.' The class was split into 2 groups and experiments were set up at opposite ends of the classroom. Rubber bands featured at one end and marbles at the other.
This group sre experimenting with stored, transferred and kinetic energy.
The Southern Thunderbird's netball team (made up of our year 7 girls), ended their season on Saturday with 2 trophies. They were the Round 2 winners and also took out the 3rd place trophy for finals day. Congratulations to you all - an amazing effort from the team and their coach.

Thankyou all for your wonderful generosity in donating to this worthy cause. The school as a whole, raised over $700.00 for the Cancer Sociey. There was a real variety of 'weird and wonderful' yellow outfits on display. Check out the models below ...
The path and mosaic seating that Room 1/2 undertook as a technology challenge, has been completed. A huge thankyou to Mrs Sara and her helpers who have given up their weekends to get this project finished. While the path was completed last year, the seating was only just finished at the weekend and it looks AMAZING! They have certainly been put to good use this week with children being able to sit on them and have their lunch in the sunshine.
Tonight, Mrs Sara and Mrs Rout had the priviledge of being invited to attend Shanaya's NZ Citizenship ceremony. It was a very special event and we were thrilled to be part of it. Shanaya, her mum and her sister were dressed in the most beautful clothes and they looked gorgeous. Congratulations on becoming a NZ Citizen, Shanaya.
