Technology

We have been lucky enough to have technology twice this week. The year 7's are doing art and cooking. They have been using clay to make things with a botanical theme in art and in cooking have been making smoothies and fruit kebabs.
The boys were having fun with the scrum machine at lunch time:

Camp

We had a fantastic time last week on camp. We did a wide range of activities; making shelters, bush walk, swimming, kayaking, sailing, archery and mountain biking to name a few. We got closer as a class and learnt a lot about ourselves and our classmates. These are some photos of us in action:
