Students enjoying the Mini Olympics

Last month the Prep – Year 3 area was a sea of blue and yellow as students donned their house colours for the Tin Can Bay School Mini Olympics.

Students took part in elastic high jump, ball games, vortex throwing, sack races and sprints. Cooloola Cove Woolworths kindly donated the fruit snack of apples, mandarins and bananas to replenish energy levels before the fun continued (thanks for delivering it Anthony!).

More activities were enjoyed before the culminating event of giant tug-of-war. There was much sweat, laughter and to-and-fro-ing as parents and teachers were challenged by almost 100 students.

The determination of students started to pull the adults, before they dug deep and pulled the students across the middle marker.

Thank you to Mr Green (our HPE teacher) for organising this excitement- packed morning and to all the parents and families who came along to support the students.

Questacon Fun

Much fun was had on Tuesday, August 12, when the Questacon Science team brought their innovation workshop ‘Game Changers’ to the school. Many students in years 6, 7, 8 and 9 rose to the challenge of innovating a Makey Makey keyboard to broaden the circuit and play notes in new and interesting ways (including using toys as conductors!).

What a way to explore and enjoy science!
