The showcase of the Global Projects will occur on Tuesday 28 August.
The Premier League group will be showcasing in the Shearing Shed from 11.10am – 12.00pm and the Activity Group showcasing in the Mansion from 12.10pm – 1.00pm.
This is a great opportunity for parents and friends in the community to come along and see what the students have been investigating.
A snapshot of a project…
“We are looking at fundraising for Variety - the children's charity. This charity makes wigs for kids in Australia who suffer from alopecia and cancer. They accept both hair and money donations and we are looking at donating both of these elements. Our plan is to go to a primary school, whom we are already in contact with, and hold a crazy hair day.
Our final product will be a video that documents the experience as well as raises awareness of alopecia, cancer and Variety. We are also considering the idea of making a hair donation. Footage of this hair donation will be included in our final product. All five of our group members have expressed our willingness to cut our own hair out of support for the kids in Australia who do suffer from hair loss.”
Some of our students recently learnt the art of Japanese paper folding in class – making shapes and animals. They enjoyed being creative as the pictures below show.
This week some of our students have been enjoying “Cooking 101” – making some of those treats that Grandma used to make. Students pictured are making rum balls – without the rum of course! Next week is chocolate crackles and honey joys. Thanks to Mrs Judy Irvine who has been running the sessions with the students.
At our recent Mazzarello Assembly we congratulated the following students:
