Science Fair 

On Tuesday the 13th of November 2018, we held a Science Fair in our school
hall. Each class made science displays and demonstrated science experiments
to other classes throughout the day. Everyone did a fantastic job preparing the
experiments and engaging with the other girls, parents and guardians. There
were plenty of interesting experiments and investigations to see including
volcanic eruptions, seeing what liquid is the best for cleaning a dirty coin,
shadow puppets, amazing triangles, acrobatic clowns, dancing raisins, looking

at sound. We really enjoyed working as scientists for the day. Well done to
everyone involved!
