How sustainable are we? This term, as part of our ‘Sustainability’ project, our Year 6 students have been finding answers to this driving question.
The focus of Project Based Learning is that learning experiences are relevant both to students and to their community. With this in mind, students held a Sustainable Expo, showcasing a range of sustainable houses and commercial buildings, constructed across the term.
The Expo featured visiting industry specialist ranging from civil engineers, real estate agents, environmental engineers and sustainability experts, who critiqued, questioned and then judged student work on the sustainable features incorporated into each house.
Parents and invited guests were amazed by the innovation, creativity and professionalism that students showcased throughout the Expo. The variety of sustainable commercial and residential homes and buildings included in the ‘King’s Eco Village’, highlighted the knowledge and understanding that students developed across the project.
We are so proud of our students and the fantastic work they produced. We are ready for a nice, restful holiday in preparation for our Term 3 Government project.

As part of this term’s Year 4 inquiry unit, students have been learning about Newton's Three Laws of Motion and how these forces are displayed in the real world. To demonstrate their understanding, students created their own functioning arcade games that utilise at least one of Newton's laws. Students completed the design process and built their arcade game using recyclable materials. On Monday June 17 Parent's and Carers were invited to see the Auditorium transformed into our very own King’s Arcade.
Dear Prep Parents and Guardians,
A quick note to let you know that, from the start of Term 3 2019 Prep classes, at both of our campuses, will finish at 3:00pm. This change is part of our annual strategy to help our wonderful Prep students adapt to school life.
Prep children can be collected from 3:00pm, from their classroom. Following that time, students will be escorted to the regular Lower Primary collection area for their campus.

On the June 11, year 7 held their own Night at the Museum. This museum was a great learning opportunity not just for the students but for parents as well. There were three different civilisations which were Ancient Rome, Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt. In each of these rooms there were different artefacts made by the year 7’s with a description about them. Some of the artefacts were: The Sword of Tiberius, Nine Men’s Morris, Siren Vase, The Trojan Horse, The Pergamon Altar and Tutankhamuns Mask. These were a major impact in our society today because they help improve the materials being used to make that item. The opportunity for the students to interact with there parents and other adults discussing what they have learnt demostrated the value of the Night at the Museum.

My first initial reaction was I was excited for the night at the museum because I got to make an artefact of my choice and all the setting up leading to it was also fun. For me choosing an artefact wasn’t too tough because I already had a small and easy one idea for an artefact which was the Cypriots children’s rattle. The researching was a bit harder because of the fact that not all of the object label questions were easily findable.
Hayden Barney (7R)
I think that preparing for The Night At The Museum was the most fun part because the additional jobs were very fun (especially the curator job that I did) because we all got to work together and learn together. It was fun testing and making the name labels and talking while we were cutting the paragraphs and mounting them. I think that having 4 people working on one big job instead of 2 made it much easier because we would not have finished if we only had two. The extra jobs were also good for people who have finished their things and could help the people with extra jobs to finish their job.
