Boyle River camp

Last week – 55 year 8 students, 9 parents and two teachers (myself and Miss Brien) headed to Boyle River Education Centre in the Lewis Pass. We had the most amazing week with fantastic weather. Miss Brien has made this movie that shares all our experiences.

Science in a box

Today we were really lucky to have a surprise visit from ‘Science in a box’ – a touring science show. The focus was on chemistry and Room 5 had a lot of fun experimenting with hydrogen, liquid nitrogen and helium. If you persevere with the slow motion video it is definitely worth it. πŸ™‚

I am always so surprised at the amazing talents that students have. Here are the ones from this year’s showcase performance in Room 5. Enjoy the variety – from bike tricks, hair braiding, singing, rip sticking, football skills and an incredible chocolate cake.
