This term, Year 2 have been investigating push and pull and how an object moves or changes shapes in our science unit “Push and Pull”.

On Friday 9th June the students attended an incursion by Fizzics Education that gave the students an additional understanding of how we use force to move things. 

Year2 learnt about pushing and pulling objects, friction, gravity and inertia. They enjoyed discovering these scientific concepts using magnets, spinning wheels, pushing a rocket using the force of air and pulling a cloth from under a glass bottle.

More photos of this incursion are available in the Media Gallery.

    Last Friday, our school community truly demonstrated how we can pull together to achieve amazing things. The students and teachers enjoyed a day of crazy socks, a sausage sizzle, zooper doopers and shooting goals. The students and teachers had so much fun, especially when the students were trying to shoot a goal against their teacher. We raised roughly $1,500 which will be donated to Catholic Mission to support families in Ethiopia facing malnutrition and food insecurity. These funds raised will help sustain and enrich the lives of vulnerable children who are in need of our support. Thank you to our community for working together to help those in need. “Together we can” do amazing things to answer God’s call to action.
