The Science of 2017

Welcome to 2017

Welcome to all new and returning families.  Here at the Science of Grovedale West you will find some information about the sort of activities and investigations that the students have been doing in Science.  It is also an opportunity for students to show parents a little of what they have been discovering in Science.  The site will at times be used as a forum for requesting resources that you may have around the home!

First off for the year I would like to make a request!!  If families were able to donate to the school any hand tools that they have at home but no longer use we would really appreciate it.  Some of the things that we are looking for include:

  • Hammers
  • Screwdrivers
  • Pliers
  • Wire strippers
  • Clamps
  • Saws (tenon, panel, pruning)
  • Digging forks
  • Spades
  • Secateurs

To support our science activities we would love you to collect items at home and send them along to school.

Some of the items that we require are:

  • glass jars (especially Dolmio)
  • clean tin cans
  • metal patty pans (eg. mince pie containers)
  • postage tubes
  • bubble wrap
  • unwanted metal bolts and screws
  • electrical wire ( especially copper wire)
  • 1.25 plastic soft drink bottles
  • unwanted fish tanks ( preferably smaller ones)
  • unwanted balls – eg. rubber bouncy balls,
  • marbles
  • tennis balls
  • cardboard rolls from paper towel and glad wrap (no toilet rolls)
  • shoe boxes
  • large vitamin containers

Thanks in advance for your support of the Science program.
