Intrepid Year 8 Students on Camp

The intrepid Year 8 students spent three days during Week 3 of Term 4 away from school at beautiful Camp Mornington, nestled in the hills near Waroona. After lunch on the first day, three hours passed very fast while we shared smelly shoes, solved group puzzles (using our multiprocessing skills – kicking a soccer ball, passing a basketball and listening to our screaming classmates simultaneously!) and “run the gauntlet” style dodgeball. It was surprising who…

Medieval Day

Is it possible to live a whole historical era in one day?

Probably not, but it might be possible to get a taste for the type of lives that ordinary people would have lived and the skills that they had. This was the aim of the Year 8 Medieval Day in the last week of Term 3.

Year 8 students spent their time preparing food over an open fire. Some students spent a long time…

Despite being very new to coding, our students rose to the challenge and have done a…

Fremantle, Frozen Cokes, Firefighters, and Fun

In Week 3 of this Term, Year 8 students hit the streets of Fremantle for the first day of their camp. It was a great day of tracking down items and photos for the scavenger hunt, exploring the tunnels beneath Fremantle Prison, and laughing and enjoying each other’s company.

One of the highlights was when one group accidentally broke into a Fire Station, shocking the firefighters mid-training session by their entrance into a “secure area”.…

Our learning extension students have recently been working on writing psalms as a response to God’s astronomical creation. Here are three of them:

Mighty creator,
My position too small to comprehend
How you made the earth from end to end.
I look to the stars, the planets, the sun
And see you shining out to me
You are continuously the Lord, never are you…

Galileo vs. da Vinci

Term 1 of LEX@R has flown past! We began with a trip to Fremantle to look at the genius of Leonardo da Vinci and C. Y.

Following in their footsteps, we have attempted some of the experiments that Galileo and…

Last week we spent a day in Fremantle, exploring the machines, drawings, and inventions of Leonardo da Vinci. Many of them we were able to try out and see how they worked.…
