At Pinehurst School Year 6 students and their parents have recently had the opportunity to attend a Family Science Workshop.
The workshops aim to empower adults to talk about science with their children, and nurture future science-literate generations. Fun games are incorporated into engaging activities during the workshops and to introduce science topics that the students and their parents can do together. Along with presenter Ashleigh Fox, Senior College Science students assist in the demonstrations. The evenings to date have been very successful with great feedback from both the students and the parents attending.
In Terms 3 & 4 there will be more opportunities for families to attend workshops in Electrical Energy and Rocket Launches.

On Wednesday 9th May, College Principal, Mr Wiggin and Year 8 Dean, Mr Reynolds jumped off the Sky Tower for The Graeme Dingle Foundation - a Child and Youth Development Charity.
As a school for Year 0-13 students, Pinehurst is a passionate supporter of this charity, which educates Kiwi kids in believing in themselves, because every young person should realise they have the potential to succeed and feel positive about their future.
