Yr 4 – Reading In Year 4, we have been exploring the idea of stamina. We have been specifically trying to build our reading stamina so that we can stay engaged in what we are reading for longer. We have been discussing Just Right Books and how we can choose these.

STEM – Science Technology Engineering and Math Last Thursday students from Year 6 were invited to participate in the STEM Showcase. Here's more from Ngun Hlei Par Cha Chai. Eden, Zak and myself were invited to showcase our learning and the opportunity to win prizes at the STEM (Science Technology Engineering & Math) Showcase at the Catholic Education Centre. Ngun and I created QR codes for the visually impaired. The QR codes are placed on food products and then scanned by phones where they will be taken to a recorded message with information about the product, such as the ingredients and expiry date. Zak chose to make a prototype using the 3D printer to create a hearing aid for the hearing impaired but instead of a hearing aid that is big and bulky sitting behind the ear, he created an earring that works like a hearing aid! Inside the earring would be a microchip that does the same job as a hearing aid. He called it, the "HEARRING". Whilst at the STEM Showcase we were able to see many projects created by other students from other primary and secondary schools. When learning about their projects, we learnt that STEM is a very diverse subject with many choices to explore. We were very thankful to be given the opportunity to experience this kind of excursion and it was an honour to be able to share our project with the judges, teachers and other students.
