Our students of Year 9 engaged in a Robotics class,learning about a very powerful and engaging tool - 'The working and programming of the Edison Robot'. The students got a hands on experience and since the Robots are modular and expandable using log bricks, it enriched the students education experience. Students used their Higher Order thinking skills to solve the challenges that they encountered with Edison Robot.
Congratulations Year 9!

On the 24th of August, a group of year 9, 10 and 11 students completed the 2 – day bronze Duke of Edinburgh hike with Ms Yong, Mr Howard and Ms Coutinho. With the threat of rain, it wasn’t until the afternoon before that we decided that we would complete the hike. We met at Strathfield station at 8:30am with our 65 Litre bags packed and covered along with our raincoats and jackets zipped up. We arrived at Cowan railway station just after 9:30am and were greeted by the sun, blue skies and about 2000 Oxfam hikers, who completed a 100km hike for charity.

We began our 14Km journey through Jerusalem Bay with the year 11’s leading, as they were completing their qualifier. After a long day battling the heat, we arrived at our campsite at Brooklyn Dam after 3:30pm. We set up our tents and prepared ourselves for the evenings events. This was dinner, bonding activities and fun with our friends. We ended the night early at around 8:00pm with marshmallows. The next morning began bright and early at 7:00am. We packed up our tents, ate breakfast and prepared ourselves for the rest of the hike. We left at 8:00am and arrived at Hawkesbury River train station before 10:00am making the train as the doors were closing. Our journey had come to an end.
