    3D Printing Kids Challenge: Learn, Dream, Create


    If your brain is bubbling with ideas, you have a flair for technology and have the guts to go head to head with other young geniuses like yourself, take this challenge and see your inventions come to life.

    Do you see ways how to improve the school life, home and leisure time using 3D-printed objects? Have you developed an inspiring toy concept or come up with a brilliant invention for everyday problems? Then go ahead and design it. The easiest way to develop a truly inventive idea for your project is to find something that causes trouble, a daily problem that gets people frustrated, something that requires a creative approach – then put your mind to it and offer a 3D printing-inspired solution.

    We will welcome a wide range of good quality 3D printable models from juniors aged 14 & under.

    Let your imagination roam free – learn, dream, create!

  3. 2014 Book Week

    _DSC3752As part of Book Week the students will be participating in a whole school mini inquiry, commencing on Monday the 11th  of August  and concluding with a special 2.30 pm assembly  on Thursday 21st of August. A big part of the inquiry will be to investigate, through book talk, how readers connect to the stories they read, and the kinds of personal, social, cultural and literary assumptions the writer is making about their reader.   A reader’s prior knowledge and experiences support readers in responding to the meanings of the texts they read.  Book talk not only encourages students to engage in and respond to the books they are reading, but by listening  to the varied experiences of  their peers, also enriches their own experience of the text. As a community of readers, we would like to extend an invitation for parents to come into the neighbourhood of their child and share a book that resonated with them at a similar age.  Please let your child’s teachers know if you would like to participate in sharing your experience with the children  by arranging a suitable time for this to occur.
