LA 19 Explorers

Young Scientists

This week all the year 6 & 7 students, including us from LA19, went on an excursion to Kings Park Rio Tinto Naturescape. The students enjoyed all the different activities such as walking barefoot through the creek, climbing the towers, getting tangled in the ropes and building cubbies. It was a wonderful chance for the students to enjoy getting close to nature and experiencing the type of outdoor activities they rarely get to do. Following this the students took part in scientific investigations into wetlands, the creatures that exist in and around them and the importance of wetlands to a healthy biodiversity. The science was completely hands on and thouroughly enjoyable and educational. Thanks to the great staff at Kings Park and to Mrs. Bartucciotto for her excellent organisation.


Watch out for crocs!

  1. Hello Mr Hope! Just reading through your blog as it was on Lollys laptop! Hope everythings well with your new class and they become great bloggers like the old LA19 last year. I’m doing pretty well at highschool and got 2 a’s, 4b’s and 3 c’s. Not bad but failing in maths.. Old habbits never change! Good look to all the new bloggers and I hope you have a great year without the amazing year 8’s that left. πŸ™‚ Jaaz

  2. Jaaz, so good to hear from you and great to see you doing so well (thought you would). It’s largely thanks to you and your efforts in making blogging successful last year that I’m carrying on with it, so a big “thanks”. Don’t worry about grades and stuff, just keep being yourself and things WILL click, I’ve total faith in you as a student and as a person. It’s so important to be happy, unstressed and know that you are doing your best, then what will be will be. This year’s students are a good bunch, but they’ve got a lot to live up to after such a great class last year, but I reckon they’ll do it! Keep in touch and let us know how you’re getting on once in a while. Good luck!

  3. That was fun can’t wait till you post something new πŸ™‚

  5. Dear Mr. Hope I loved that day my favourite was the rock pool building dams I fell over and almost hit my head on the rocks.

    Great to hear from you. I hope things are going well for you at high school – I’m sure they are. The new class are a very mixed bunch, but they are really a good group. Some have taken to the blogging really well, much better than last year in fact, which surprised me as I thought you lot were pretty good. I’ve seen a few of last year’s students and most are happy and doing well. Good luck with whatever you are doing and keep being that same independent, smiling Pat we all know.
