The Pie and Milo lunches are proving very popular and we ask parents to send a non frozen pie as the temperature in the hall kitchen does not allow for the pies to defrost in time.  Remember to put your names on the pies.

Whats been happening in senior school?
Yr 8 Photo Walk
Last Friday, Miss Tangney and the Yr 8's went for a walk around the Harbour to take photos for the Otago Museum Photo Competition.  They learnt a lot about photography and took some great photos.

Yr 6 Ooblic
This week the Yr 6 class created Goo out of cornflour and water as part of their Science Inquiry Unit. They discussed chemical changes, hypothesis, methods and how they needed to explain their observations and findings.  They had lots of fun and created a massive mess with all hands on deck to clean up.
