What Would You Do?

26 August - The Race Last week in class we watched footage of the race where Nikki Hamblin and Abby D'Agostino supported each other when they collided in the 5000m race at the Olympics. After discussing all the different points of view everyone gave their own opinion as to how they would have acted. Enjoy reading the range of views. Please comment and tell us what you would have done in the same situation.

Mahe Drysdale Comic

Cameron and Cody have done a great job writing a comic form script of Mahe's race. They have expressed their thoughts as to what their fellow Olympians may have been thinking.

Cupcake Day for the SPCA

17 August 2016 Cupcakes poured into school this morning - much to the delight of the many students who ordered them. Thanks to all those parents who baked, decorated and purchased cupcakes. They were delicious! Room One iced and decorated their own cupcakes. Some of the techniques were certainly interesting!
