On Wednesday 31 May, selected students from years 5 and 6 attended Wellington Point State High School to participate in the Osprey A.C.E.S. Science Gala Day. Gumdale was one of four schools invited to participate in the day and students experienced high school science life by attending workshops run by the science teachers. Students in year 5 made slime, while year 6 students practised using Bunsen Burners and all students made a bag using the technique of chromatography. 

As well as this, students participated in the ‘It’s Academic’ quiz competition. They were competing against the three other schools and were faced with some very challenging questions. Not only did Gumdale win various rounds, we also came out at the overall winner!!! We returned to Gumdale with the trophy for the second year running.

We thank Wellington Point State High School for all of their hard work to organise the event. Thank you also to our students for their outstanding effort and behaviour on the day – Always Our Bestosprey109-06-17.png
