Congratulations to our winning Science Team!

Congratulations to our fantastic Year 7 Science Team. They won the Christ College Intermediate Science competition!! In Biology they had to create slides from plant leaves and use microscopes to identify the differences in their structure. In Physics they had to measure an oscillating spring under different weights, plot their measurements and then use this graph to identify a mystery weight. In Chemistry they had five different tablets that they had to identify through their reactions to other substances.

What amazing talent and teamwork. We are all very proud of you!

Is this Art?

This is a piece of artwork by Hans Hofmann titled Equinox which he painted in 1958. This type of art is known as abstract expressionism and involves the artist using colour and form (shape) to enlist an emotional response from the viewer.
