The End of an Era - Baa Baa Bramble!

Wednesday, 15 Oct 2014

At the end of last term we said farewell to Bramble and his friends. Bramble had been a feature of the school for almost 10 years and was enjoyed by both teachers and students. Although no rival to Shrek, he entertained with his occasional head butts and became a school favourite. We would like to thank the Hall family for letting us use him to graze the school fields all those years. We wish him well for his retirement on the farm down by the beach. Baa Baa Bramble!

Our annual School Science Fair was held recently, on Monday, July 28th here in the school hall. Students from Year 7 - 10 were required to choose a subject, research and evaluate it and produce their findings in the form of a science project. Projects were then independently judged by a total of 4 judges, on the various components of their project, including originality, presentation, scientific method and recording of results etc etc.
