Merry Christmas to you all

Room 7, it has been an awesome year teaching you all. You are a crazy bunch at times,
but also very thoughtful, caring, clever and full of personality.

I want to say a big thank you to you all for your hard work (and parents) for your support
over the year. I have been overwhelmed by the amount of lovely gifts received over the
last few days. . 

Good luck for year 6, and have heaps of fun being the leaders of the school. Work hard
and try your best, and make the most of every experience. And Good luck year 7, and I
would like to wish you all the best for the future and your time at Intermediate next year.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, be safe, wear sunscreen, and have lots of fun.
I'll see you all at the start of the year, and look forward to hearing about your holiday

Lots of love, 
Mrs Helena Swan

A Cup Holder

Detachable cup

Scooters are used for a lot of things for example travelling, but say your  going to the dairy to get a drink, but you can’t hold the drink while riding the scooter or you will probably drop the drink,, instead of just holding the drink you can use a detachable cup holder as the drink won’t Spill. There are a two clips that attaches onto the handlebars of the scooter, any scooter will work with two long sticks on either side of the clips and they attaches onto a cup holder ( which is where you put the cup). The cup holder will be very sturdy.

Plastic Shredder Prototype

plastic shredder is a machine used to cut plastic into smaller pieces for granulation. The shredders are designed specifically for all plastic waste, like car bumpers, pipes, plastic straws and plastic cups. In the process, large plastic items are fed into the shredder.This is how plastic breaks down.

Drain Protector

A Drain Protector is to stop pollution and rubbish from going down the drain and to protect the sea life.

To work the drain protector you have to put it in the drain and leave it for every second Monday after, you use the pegs and hook it onto the drain and pull it up. To stop it from slipping down the drain there is white tape on it. Now you have to empty it into the bin. Finally you put it back in drain, and set up again.

Underwater Speaker Prototype!

Our prototype is an underwater speaker that would sit on the bottom of fishing boats. The speaker would play loud Orca/killer whale sounds to scare away dolphins, sharks, whales and sea turtles from big fishing nets. This is a major problem for all sea creatures and if we don’t change now we may have no more sea life left.

Did you know recent studies show that more than 87,000 sharks, 3,400 dolphins and 1,100 sea lions over the past 25 years have died due to fishing nets. The nets are also estimated to have killed more than 380 whales and 100 sea turtles! WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING NOW!

Our invention is an underwater speaker that plays loud Orca\killer whale sounds to scare away sharks, dolphins and a few more sea creatures. The speaker would sit under large fishing boats and play the sounds, The sound will not affect the fish as much as it will other sea creatures as they can’t exactly hear noises, as of this, the fish number caught should still be the same. Who would want to kill a graceful dolphin?
