Boys who are graduating this year sardined in the Hui pod playing Lego. Senior boys and girls practising their poetry recitals in the viewing hub on the stage to each other for the upcoming competition. A girl on the computer in the tech hub doing work., while the boys lay on the green screen stage on their Crome books. …The LIT teacher doing something so exciting with a group in her office the kids had smiles a mile wide. Year 4s choosing books and one little girl in a reading nook tucked away quietly reading. I said to …………, is it ok if I just cry cause I’m so happy? Thanks for making a vision of learning a reality guys ” Nikki Urlich. Deputy Principal
