Room 7 – OWLS adventure

The boys and girls in Room 7 were lucky enough to go on an outing to a local park with ‘Mouse’.

They discovered lots of bugs and wildlife there.

They used all of their SESE skills on this trip!

Room 15 – Sound experiments

Room 15 have been learning about sound. This week we completed some fun sound experiments. We discovered that we hear sound through sound waves.


“I really enjoyed all these experiments! My favourite one was ‘Good Vibrations’. I’m so glad we did the experiments”                                                                         – Jenny


“We did an experiment called ‘paper cup phones’ where there was a hole in the paper cups and we put string through it. We put the paper cups to our ear while our partner talked, then we switched. Me and my partner had a lot of fun”              – Fjolla



St. Louis are awarded their 5th GREEN FLAG!!

The boys and girls in St. Louis have been working on their 5th Green flag. This flag was all about Global Citizenship.

Well done to everybody involved – it is a fantastic achievement for our school!!

We learned lots of interesting things about dogs and how to care for them.

A big thank you to Tuccia’s mum and Sammy for the visit.
