Term 1, Week 10

Hi Everyone,

We've had another busy week in LC2. We have started our collaborative projects which relate to our inventive thinking immersion, so make sure you ask your child what their project is about. 

We've enjoyed sharing our learning journey with you during our IEMs, as well as goals and celebrations. 

Our students have started running the workshops they have been busy planning. This is a fantastic opportunity for them to share their skills with others. 

 Tate's Block Workshop

 Owen's Sign Language Workshop

During our trip to The Mind Lab we got to use a MaKey MaKey kit to create circuits and programme our own sound effects using the programme Scratch on the computer. 
Using touch pads, everyday objects are transformed into the keys from the keyboard.

On Tuesday we had our first sports sessions run by the Hobsonville Point Secondary School students. Our students are involved in different sports at this time, including soccer, hockey, netball, rugby, cricket and basketball.

Term 1, Week 9

Hi Everyone,

Thanks to those of you who came along to support Learning Common 3's Market Day on Wednesday. It was a huge success. The money they raised will go towards their education outside the classroom activities. They learnt a lot about managing projects, people and money. Your support was very much appreciated. Thank you.

Before the market day, Learning Common 1 joined us in our common for some cross-common activities. It was a great opportunity for our students to get to know each other a little better. 

Some of our students have made videos of their Mind Lab reflections. Click the image below to see the videos on our LC2 Learning Hub site.
