Investigations Week 7

Kaitlyn: I learnt that if you put too much icing sugar in an icing mix that it would go sandy and grainy

Matios: I learnt that olive preservation is a lot of fun to make

Shiv: Dylan and I thought a bit of humour would be fun so we created an Illuminati with the nails and wool

Izzy: We learnt how to write a resume and how it will help me in the future

Joseph: I went to pick the black olives to preserve and we had to put them in hot water for 5 minutes, then we added salt and squeezed lemon juice into the bucket as well.

Mehtaab: I enjoyed creating my own resume

Francis: Whilst preserving olives, I learnt about the 3 olives that we have grown at school, Kalamata Olives, Spanish Olives and Verdale Olives

Adrian: I learnt how operate an Ozobot

Kiara: I enjoyed learning how to code the Ozobots and what I have to do to code them and how they respond to different colours


As June 4th 2017 was Pentecost, Students explored the significance of this event in the Catholic Church. They were able to make links and connects with the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit with the 24 character strengths and how they show these gifts/examples in their own lives.


In Health we have been exploring healthy relationships in our life.

Have a look at what the students brainstormed:

We discussed what a healthy relationship involves and how to spot unhealthy relationships and introduced them to term frenemy. We will continue to explore this topic and different strategies that can be used in such situations.

Money and Finance

Over the last few weeks students have busy planning, budgeting and organising dinner parties, exploring GST and looking at how to calculate percentage sales of 10%, 25% and 50% and how to compare prices to get the best value for money.

It has been great to see the students applying their skills in real life activities. 

Mission Day June 2nd

Please remember this FRIDAY 2nd JUNE is Mission Day at school. Students are invited to wear casual clothes for a gold coin donation that will go towards the charities that we support: Loreto Vietnam Orphanage, Catherine House and Fred’s Van.

A reminder that the canteen WILL NOT BE OPEN AT ALL on Friday as the canteen staff will be busy making soup for the students that have ordered this special.
