The enthusiasm continues – paper planes are still appearing with students engaged in the challenge of flying them.


Multiple rotor machines flew over the Primary Oval, doing aeronautical maneuvers.

Where did it fly? The tri copter flew over the oval and the students could see the images on the television screen. Many ooohs and much clapping were heard in appreciation and amazement.

In class, students viewed the other uses of drones and robots as the theme of this week was – Drone, Droids and Robots.

In our unit – Up, Down and All Round – we have been viewing the sky – day and night. Students have been encouraged to view the same site in the day and at night.
