Thought of the Week: Faithfaithquote

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase”. 
Martin Luther King Jr.

Faith is the substance of hope - of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. So if you can hope for it and imagine it, and keep imagining and hoping and seeing yourself driving a new car, or seeing yourself getting that job, or seeing yourself excel, seeing yourself help that person - that is faith”. 
Duane Chapman

Featured Learning

Future Architects Highlighted in Year 8 Geography Lessons!

View the embedded image gallery online at:

This week, Year 8 students have been putting theory to practice in the form of earthquake proof buildings. In lessons so far, they have studied the causes and effects of an earthquake. Now the students needed to work on providing a long term response to an area of tectonic activity. 

After learning about earthquake proof designs in San Francisco and Japan, the students had a challenge set. They were to design their very own earthquake proof building using straws!

The criteria was set and the students had 20 mins to come up with the goods. They came up with some ‘interesting’ designs but there was only one clear winner! The champion designers are pictured with their winning building!
