In the last two weeks of school year for 2020, the Year 7 cohort came together in small groups to plan, design, construct then race Billy Carts. This was to connect with our Sciences unit based on physics and forces.

At the beginning of this year, the Year 8s were given the opportunity to be part of a service initiative known as the Somerset Shed. Each Tuesday lunchtime a small group of students are undertaking building projects.

The current project is to make the lending libraries for Storyfest. Once constructed, they will be placed in various location across the Gold Coast. This allows us to work together with our peers and contribute to our community.

We are grateful for the assistance from Year 9 mentors, Amy and Xavier who assist us along with Mrs Walker.

If any Year 8 students are interested in being part of the Somerset Shed group please contact Mrs Walker.
