Net of Hope

This was a whole-school maker project. Students made a net with a giant Nancy loom at lunchtimes, before and after school, in the libraries. The loom was then placed on the school Terrace for a week at lunchtimes during Culture Week. On the last day of Culture Week the net was tied to the walkway. On this day and several days following, students wrote on coloured strips their hopes, and these were then tied to the net, so others can read the strips and share positive hopes for the future.


Makerspace Term 2, 2017

During Term 1, students were encouraged to explore building and creating through using both high and low-technology resources, such as Lego Robotics and littleBits, as well as our craft supplies of paper, cardboard and other “bibs and bobs”. Particularly at the end of the term, students made some beautiful Easter craft creations.

In Term 2, students made a Mother’s Day scrub as a gift. Students engaged in a STEAM construction challenge; Balloon-Powered Cars. They sewed flowers using a version of string art. They made bookmarks out of paper. Our new giant Nancy loom is ready for some giant French Knitting…
