Lower Primary 1 Performance
Lower Primary students performed a small play called ‘Giraffes Can’t Dance’. The children knew their lines and practiced very hard, they all moved like the animals and spoke very loudly and clear. They invited Lower Primary 2 to watch and then we talked about books, characters and why stories have “mean” and “kind” characters and how it relates to real life. The children really enjoyed the play and conversation with great input.

What a great night we had at SciTech on Friday 17th August. It was wonderful to see so many of the school community in attendance. Both adults and students found lots of activities to enjoy, educate and entertain them. It's no wonder that everyone looks forward to this event each year,
Thank you to the P.P.S.C. for organising the event, the pizzas and the food. Not only do we enjoy going but they enjoy having us. At the end of the evening one of the SciTech Staff commented "Thank you for coming. Your school is easy to work with and your parents and students are a pleasure to have here".
