Morning Notes

Monday 16 March

Lego Products

As a design project, grade 9 have been creating lego products and submitting them to a website called lego ideas. This is an official lego website which lets people submit ideas for a Lego set, and If it gains 10,000 supporters within a year, it will go into review and possibly become a bestseller in a Lego store.


I have made Lego bumper cars for this project! If possible can you please go and support my Lego project and hopefully I will get reviewed!

Emily Grade 9

Grade 10 - Personal project details

On Monday students in Grade 10 will be interviewed by a panel of staff. Each student will spend 20 minutes with the panel. Here they will be showing their project, as well as the report and will be asked rigorous questions to see how they are doing for each of the four criteria. This will be a fantastic opportunity for students to show off the work they have been doing so far and to get feedback for improving their work before final submission. On Monday 20th of April students will be showcasing their work, along with the Grade 8’s Community Project, to students, staff and parents in the hall. Please support Grade 10 with this project.
