Science Week in Prep

​National Science Week was a big event this year in Prep. The theme for 2020 was ‘Deep Blue: Innovation for the Future of our Oceans’.

Australia’s vast oceans are a source of constant fascination for our students and it was absolutely wonderful to learn more about the importance of our oceans and the amazing animals that live there.
