Pegasus Practice Day

 Thanks Pegasus! We had a great day practicing our athletics skills. Here are some sweet snaps of Vikki and Noah trying out high jump. I think they did pretty well.

Learning how to google map

These are some of the places students have shared with me. They are learning to create their own maps of places we have visited in Term 1. Check out the cool colours and icons they have selected.


Lawrence has been busy at M.I.T. on a photography course. He has been able to develop a picture and also edit the picture on a computer to change the colours. He thinks this makes it look really cool. Lawrence was nice and kind enough to bring some of his fantastic work to share at school. Keep up the great work Lawrence!
