Celebration of Learning

Year 10 Science

All science students have been enjoying being back in our labs in person. 

Year 10 Science students have been busy making 'reebops.' They looked at the genotypes of the parents and determined the phenotype (features) of the parents. They then created a ‘reebop’ baby with a combination of alleles from each parent.

Year 10 also had a go at extracting the DNA from strawberries!

Year 9 Geography

Year 9 Elective Geography students created some powerful and well-researched resources during lockdown for the study of the topic Physical Geography and Climate Change. Please see samples from two of the students in a very timely exploration of impacts of climate change and the importance of climate justice.
