Science Expo

On the 17th August, students from years 5, 6 & 7 had the opportunity to showcase their learning in science at the Science Expo. Groups chose a scientific question, researched and created a booth and demonstrated an exciting experiment. Students from younger classes were able to come and see the experiments and ask questions about science. Students from reception to year 5 also had the opportunity to enter a science project which they completed at home! We are so proud of the efforts of all of the students! Congratulations to all the winners!

Labs 'n Life

Labs 'n Life was established in 2007 and has since grown to provide 20 programmes each week covering schools in the Northern, Western, Southern and Country school districts.

At Northfield, the programme commenced in Term 2 this year and provides some of our targeted students with the opportunity to experience success and gain confidence whilst learning how to form and build relationships. The students work with the same dog each Wednesday afternoon. The Labradors use a collection of techniques to provide an environment that supports calming responses to situations, working in co-operation with others, sharing ideas and friends, providing cuddles when needed and the ability to play without restriction. More information can be seen at the Labs 'n Life website: Working with the Labs 'n Life dogs has produced excellent results for our students and so we hope to continue this valuable addition to our school programme.
