Almost there...

What is a 21st century classroom?
The time has come! For the past few months, Grade 7 and Grade 8 have eaten, slept and dreamt about this moment - the final presentation for the Senior Leadership Team happens ON FRIDAY!
Our soundboard

Learners have been working during breaks to get together to rehearse and edit their presentation, ready for the deadline.

In preparation and to ensure the presentation can be the best possible showcase for all their hard work, learners presented their final ideas to five volunteers who kindly gave up their free time. On Wednesday afternoon, our 'soundboard' came along to watch the final presentation and give some critical feedback via a Google Form developed from our co-constructed rubric.

All Octopus's Garden Project presenters were really nervous as they have worked really hard and it was the first time they had showed anyone else their work. However, they were kind and supportive of each other and did a really great job.

The Octopus's Garden Project team would really like to thank Mr Beach, Mr Brian, Mrs Robyn, Ms Barbara and Mr Paul for being our sounding board. Your comments, questions and feedback were encouraging and helpful - and now we have some great advice about how to improve for Friday.

The project team will work on final adjustments and rehearse a few more times before finally presenting to Dr Stuart, Mr Wade and Dr Rosie on Friday afternoon - what an awesome way to end a fabulous term!
