During Theme Week, 18 different projects were held at the school and all groups were mixed year levels between YL 4-7. The students worked together and spent time together in their groups during lunches and breaks throughout the week. Friday was the big day when guardians were invited to the school to see the projects their children have been working on all week. It was very appreciated and the students were very proud of their work and of what they had learned.
See below for some glimpses from Theme week...
