Term 3 is upon us – so quickly – and this means preliminary exams for seniors. Students will need to make sure they have a study plan for home revision.

The exams are based on NCEA format and questions so students can prepare themselves with past NCEA papers. These are available on-line via the NZQA site. Some classes will be working on internal standards – information has been given from their science teacher. 

Junior students are continuing with their curriculum topic.

Method-Our method was to make it as strong as possible and to use the required amount of popsicle sticks.

Hypothesis-Our hypothesis was that we thought it was going to be strong but we didn’t think it would look they way it does.
