UniSC Excursion

On Wednesday 7 June, the Year 10 class embarked on a field trip to UniSC (University of the Sunshine Coast). The students chose various groups, encompassing subjects such as entrepreneurship, movement and nutrition, psychology, and law.

Throughout the course of the day, the students attended four sessions, delving into the workings of their respective subjects. The business lecture was led by a highly inspiring, genuine, and enthusiastic professor, while the photography activity was creative and hands-on, allowing the students to highlight their artistic skills.

The students had a thrilling experience unravelling mysteries in the ‘how-to-get-away with murder’ investigation. The athletic movement activity was a hit as well, keeping them active and engaged throughout.

Students and teachers enjoyed a highly informative day and students have been praised for their positive attitude and exemplary behaviour.

Gympie Show Excursion

The annual Gympie Show school excursion for the Year 5/6 students took place in May. The show offered a unique opportunity for students to learn about agriculture, livestock and rural life, and engage in fun interactive activities.

They explored different exhibition areas where they saw farm animals such as cattle, sheep, pigs, and poultry and learned about their role in agriculture. The interactive sessions allowed students to ask questions, touch the animals, and develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for the hard work and dedication of those in the agricultural sector.

Additionally, students viewed displays and competitions related to horticulture, crops, gardening, and machinery providing them with information about sustainable farming practices and environmental conservation. Apart from the agricultural aspects, the show also offered demonstrations such as wood chopping and woodwork, whip cracking, native animals, and safety.

The students thoroughly enjoyed the educational and exciting day out, allowing them to interact with their classmates and teachers outside the classroom environment.

Clay Creations

During lunch breaks at Tin Can Bay School, students from Prep to Year 10 are channelling their

creativity through an engaging lunchtime activity – making clay creations.

Twice a week students gather with excitement and enthusiasm in the Art Room, under the guidance of teacher Mrs Masri, to unleash their imagination and artistic expression.

Mrs Masri’s eyes were sparkling as she recounted, “The response has been overwhelming to the activity from students across all year levels.

“Clay Creations allows students to tap into their creativity, develop fine motor skills, and foster a sense of pride in their work. We have a wonderful time!”

With their hands moulding clay and imaginations running wild, the students are turning ordinary lunch breaks into an artistic and thoroughly enjoyable experience.
