What a quick start to the term is has been. We have been busy at Touchdown. 

In week 2 we explored the water resistance of crayon with wax reveal painting. We began with progressive drawing where each student drew part of a picture and the next added to it until the fifth student painted over it with water paint to reveal the funny drawing. Then we drew our individual pictures to reveal. A great time was had by all.

In week 4 we investigated chemical reactions to create volcanic explosions, blow up balloons and reveal secret messages. 

Upcoming Touchdown Sessions:

  • Week 6 (Friday, August 23) – Craft
  • Week 8 (Friday, September 6) – Cooking

Touchdown is a program that is run for Groves Distance Education students who have additional needs from Prep – Year 12. It is run on Friday mornings 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 at the hall. Please ensure that your student wears closed in shoes and brings a water bottle, a hat and a small, healthy snack for morning tea.
