Middle School Newsletter: Volume 17

Middle School Newsletter: Volume 16

Term 4

Weeks 8 & 9

What's happening in the Middle School?

"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..."

Well, it's that time of year again! Christmas decorations going up and carols being sung. We have a busy couple of weeks coming up to make sure that the time flies and we will all be on summer holidays before we know it.

The Middle School have been reflecting upon their learning and looking forward to the new adventures that await next year.

During this hot weather (my favourite), please remind your child to pack a drink bottle, the school uniform wide brimmed hat and sunscreen each day.

 Remember to check for new events in the Calendar Dates section below.

boats! Over the course of the term the teams have worked together to plan, design and build their boats using recycled materials. Their design brief was to transport a packet of biscuits and most groups were successful! Photos are below.
