Science, debating and the Olympics are just some of the highlights during a busy Term 3 for the Intermediate department.
An outdoor sheep dissection for Science was bravely tackled by the girls and a keen interest in studying animal anatomy was evident. A poem by Year 7 student, Ella Simmons, describes the experience in gory detail:
Disgusting sheep guts and offal,
It smelt extremely awful.
Stomachs with different textures inside,
Stretching 32 metres of small intestine.
Each lung being blown up like a balloon,
Could make many of the students swoon.
The dissection was very informative,
Everyone was trying to be bravely positive.
Once in a lifetime experience,
Educational and in the end not that hideous!
Our debating girls have continued to go from strength-to-strength as they move into the semi-finals of the Radio Kidnappers Live On-Air debating competition.
Debaters: Maddy Kitchener, Phoebe Burns and Isobel Ham
A cross-curricula unit about the Olympics has seen the girls planning and preparing a modified mini Olympics to be held near the end of the Term in Physical Education.
