The Co-op celebrated Book Week with our annual Book Week Parade, this year based on the book 'Not a Box' with the theme "It's not a box, its a...". With the theme in mind, students and staff created something out of a box, which wasn't actually a box. We had unicorns, planes, suitcases, cars and many more in our parade!

2017 Science Week was celebrated with our Science Fair. Students visited 6 different science rotations including future earth (where does our rubbish go?), combining liquids, rocket launch, geology, scientific toys and chandelier of plastics. We worked in multi age groups including students and staff from Black Mountain School. The day included three visiting scientists, lots of great questions and fun for all. Future Earth is in good hands!

To celebrate National Science Week, students enjoyed participating in our Science Fair. Visiting scientists, along with students and staff from our neighbouring Black Mountain school, shared their knowledge and challenged our thinking in experiences with sound waves, robotics and senses, designing robots, mini rockets, cloud in bottle, changing molecules and gravity.Sharing the learning in multi aged groups added to the fun.
