2021 Spring Music Festival: Poco Kaleidoscope - Photo Gallery

The fifth and final concert in our 2021 Spring Music Festival Series: Poco Kaleidoscope - was held on Tuesday night 16 November at our Canterbury Events Centre.

It featured our young talented students from the Junior School in four different ensembles - Year 3 Strings, All Star Strings, Allegro Strings and Junior Singers.

It was certainly great to have 324 parents, carers and family members in the audience to enjoy their on-stage performances.

Year 7 Science Challenge: Building Wind Powered Cars

Year 7 Science Challenge: Building Wind Powered Cars

Mr Emmanuel Hatzioannou’s Year 7 Science Class completed a wind-powered car construction challenge during this busy final Term 4.

His students formed seven small groups and were allocated two lessons to build a vehicle out of a plastic cup with their choice of wheels, plus various other equipment options like: straws, bags, ice cream sticks, sticky tape, plasticene, plastic sheeting, light wood dowels and paper etc.

Then each group’s student-engineered car was tested on how far it would travel when placed in front of a low pedestal fan on the classroom floor.

AND… we were there to see how their many varied car designs fared in action…

Each vehicle was given three chances to attain the longest distance, with ‘time outs’ between each run to make any emergency engineering improvements - based on the previous performance, while the other groups had their turns.

Here’s some highlights of how they went with the eventual winning group and their vehicle crowned victorious at the end…

Science Learnings: Larger and stiffer mounted wind sails generate more power and distance than smaller and loosely fitted wind sails, or bags that crumple easily loosing surface area and need filling with air before generating any forward motion.

Smaller wheels also seem to enable greater speed than larger and therefore heavier wheels, while obviously the lighter your vehicle’s body components, the further and faster it will travel.

Year 9 Science Challenge: Building & Testing Quake Proof Structures

Year 9 Science Challenge time with Mr Nield in P18!

Testing earthquake proof structures built by the student groups using paper, tape and straws in class.

The structure that can withstand the longest earthquake simulation (lateral and horizontal movement) without toppling WHILE holding the most lead weights WINS! 🥇

Let's see how they go...

2021 Principal's Year 4 World Geography Challenge

Over the past month, our Year 4 students have been learning about continents, countries, capital cities, oceans, natural features and flags in weekly lessons with Mr Walker.

All students took part in an online quiz last week, testing their knowledge from the unit, to earn points for their House.

The Grand Finale took place today, involving participants from each House in three rounds: Spelling, Capital Cities and Flags.

There was a great buzz in the room and a very close contest between the Houses ensued.

Cranmer House triumphed in the end, earning 5 points towards the Canterbury Cup interhouse trophy for 2021.
