Touchdown Term One, 2018

At our first touchdown for the year, on the Friday, 2 February, we made weather vanes and learnt about the points on a compass. Due to the stillness of the day, it was difficult to find a breeze to see if they worked but towards the end of Touchdown, a slight breeze picked up and all weather vanes were working well.

Touchdown is on again this week, Friday, 23 February and we will be exploring healthy eating.

Touchdown is a program that is run by the Enrichment staff for Groves Distance Education students with additional needs from Prep – Year 12. It is run on Friday mornings (usually on a fortnightly basis) from 9:30am – 11:30am at Campus 2 located at 12 Velorum Drive, Kingston. There is no registration needed if you are attending, you simply come to Campus 2 on the day and sign in with the Enrichment staff near the hall.
