Last Wednesday the year 5.2 students of Ms Miranda and Ms Doreen, started the day by making their own special pizza. As one can see from the photos, students were creative enough their make faces with their pizza toppings. Children practice fractions when they cut their pizza into equal parts. Together, as a team, they cleaned the kitchen and afterwards they wrote up the recipe of their pizza.
Educating students from a young age about living a healthy life and learning to make the right choices when eating and drinking are imperative. Here are more photos of students from kindergarten during the two week period covering the promotion of healthy eating and a healthy living. This project was launched on a national scale.
The year 6.1 students of Mr Cassar prepared an interesting special assembly about the lunar faces and what makes the moon shine. The students had previously done an experiment in class to understand better why the moon is not always seen as a full moon.
Recently, all state schools have been equipped with a number of resources to enhance innovation and creativity. Among these resources schools were given story starter packs. We all love playing with LEGO, so what better way than to start a creative writing session by creating your own scene using various characters in a set up created by using your imagination and LEGO blocks.
The year 4.2 students had their first attempt… Not only did they create wonderful scenes, but this activity triggered their imagination, which led to a different approach to creative writing… Students prepared their plans and finally set down to write their own stories.

As announced earlier, the kindergarten students are participating in the Health Factor Project. Apart from learning about healthy eating the students had the opportunity to do some fruit printing.
