The members of the Friday Book Club organised Read at Dusk. This was a special time after school where students could bring snacks, cushions and books for a relaxing read and discussion in the Library.
Two students read aloud the poetry they had written, and there was plenty of chat about books and preparations for the School Formal.
Congratulations to our Book Club on organising such a pleasant afternoon to celebrate Book Week.

The National Science Week school theme is Drones, Droids and Robots.
These autonomous technologies are used in agriculture, mining, manufacturing, medicine and space or deep ocean exploration. Of course, we are already pretty comfortable with the use of automated technology in our day-to-day lives, such as robot vacuum cleaners, lawn mowers and automated pool cleaners.

Take a look at this video that explores this further.
