School Notices

June 2018

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Our school wide topic this term is based on ‘Do, Notice, Wonder’ through the concept of Science. As part of this we have booked the ‘Science in a Van’ show to come to GEPS on Wednesday 6th June.

There will be two shows. One suitable for the junior school students called “The Wonderful World of Bubbles”. This involves the identifying, classifying and investigating of materials. Students will get an understanding of mixtures, how they seperate and how they come together to create a reaction. The other show is more advanced for the middle and senior school and it is called “What's the Matter”. This looks at the three states of matter. It introduces the periodic table in a fun way and demonstrates how elements can come together to make different materials. Students will also gain an understanding of how materials can change with mixing and by changing temperature and get to enjoy watching some explosive experiments.

The cost of the show is $4.00 per student and we appreciate you sending this to school to your child’s classroom teacher as soon as possible.
