GHS children stay strong and do well - good job, guys!

Enjoy Tane's Explanation Text on Light:

What is light?
Light is the connection between us and the universe. White light contains a spectrum or a range of colours. Light that comes as natural light is from the sun. Artificial light is the man made source of light eg. light bulbs or a torch.

How does light travel?
Light waves don't just float around us randomly. They all come from a source. The sun is a light source. A flashlight is another. You don't usually use your TV or computer to light up a room, but they are all travelling light sources.

How do we see colour?
Not all surfaces reflect or absorb light in the same way. We are more likely to notice bright orange than a dark grey. All objects reflect light eg. rainbow ROY (red, orange, yellow) G (green) BIV (blue, indigo, violet).

Enjoy Ivy's book, everyone! Ivy is a very young writer - what a good job!!

A big shoutout to Chloe for her awesome work on the 18k challenge!

This is  Chloe completing her 18k challenge plus her peninsula graph. Chloe and her Dad have probably completed this 3 times with the amount of biking and walking they have been doing. We found some really cool steps too in GH - 127 in total which we have done a few times now!! Chloe painted a rock saying “almost there” which we have put on one of the steps near the top.

She is also doing the Pentathlon challenge but has a couple more days to go on that so will send through when she has done her bar chart

Week 2 term 2

ANZAC Day is coming and our Gulf Harbour children show respect and kindness

Oscar and Koby are doing a lot to show our school values. They remembered a teacher's birthday, wrote a letter to a neighbour that lives by himself, created a job jar with little notes that have a job on them to help their parents and they take one out every day - I am so impressed!!

Well done, Mila! This is a great way of showing respect and kindness.

Mila's report shows what she has learned about ANZAC Day

Olympic Challenge

Way to go, guys!!

Hi Mrs Taylor, 

I started my challenge today of trying to reach 18km. I rode my bike 3 kilometres today. We have a reserve right behind our house so i rode it right along the reserve. You mentioned that the 18km challenge runs until the end of lockdown, is that on wednesday next week, when some people can go back to school? 
Because i figured out that if i did 3 kilometres each day, starting today then i can do 18km by wednesday. I knew this because from today until tuesday is 6 days and 3x6 = 18. 

I am going to run, walk and bike it each day. I really like the idea of the pentathlon (i hope i spelt that right). Im going to start that too. How many days do we do that for? 

Thank you for the cool challenges, they make lockdown more fun.

Have fun 

My first 4 walks totalled 19.7km taking me from shakespear park to snow planet. All six walks totalled 27kms which nearly got me to Albany!

Hi again, GHS community!

The first entries are coming in from the School Value Challenge - nice job, Sammy and Mia!

Sammy and Mia have made a banner to say "Thank you!" to the essential workers that are keeping us safe. I think that is fantastic. Great job, you guys!

Will sent an email to his grandfather, because they can't see each other at the moment. I bet that made his day, Will. What an awesome way to accept the school value challenge for kindness ... :)

This is such a lovely idea and shows respect and kindness, as well as resilience - amazing work, girls!

Room 6 is rocking their home learning!

Way to go Abigail and Zayden!

Mason has shared a lot of pictures with his teacher, Mrs Rae. - I think he has had a lovely time during lockdown so far. What do you think?

Sophie - I didn't get an explanation with your picture: Is this how you decide what movie to watch in your house? It's very impressive!!

Beautiful picture, Cassie!

Week 1, term 2

Check out Ivy's amazing writing and drawing. Way to go Ivy!

It is nice to see how many students are still working really hard collecting house points for their houses - they seem to have a lot of fun doing so as well :)

Awesome, Emi wrote a recount about Easter at her house!

I love your photo collage, too.

Leilani and Rachel were busy creating ...
