This week our Wednesday afternoon activity was Yoga at Pinaroo Park. It’s always such a great activity for the students to do after a long day of concentration in the classroom.
Yoga, apart from being a super fun activity also has many other benefits. Yoga can increase energy & concentration levels, be a great form of stress relief and best of all is a form of physical activity.
Hope everyone enjoyed their relaxing afternoon!

Time for Tea
The afternoon options class chose to make High Tea this week. Students planned their menu of one savoury and one desert all in tiny portions as each morsel should be no more than two bites! Traditional triangle sandwiches (no crusts) of egg mayonnaise were complemented by more modern takes on the traditional with cream cheese and fig and a further choice of ricotta cheese with pesto. The Banoffee Fingers were demolished and the Scones with cream and strawberries disappeared fast. Mini Pavlovas made an appearance topped with fresh vanilla cream and fruit and the Cream Puff Slices looked dainty and were beautifully presented dusted with icing sugar.
Each group researched their recipes and made a shopping list ready for the grand afternoon. It was a sophisticated alternative to lunch and dinner. Students tried Earl Grey tea and the treats were served on a tiered cake stand. The only question that remained was “Who shall be mother?” It is custom for the lady of the house to pour tea for her guests and the saying comes from times when tea was a luxury item and the lady of the house kept the key for the caddy. She would mix green and black tea leaves to the liking of the household and the leave the tea to brew in hot water before pouring out into china cups.
“I say it was all rather delicious ma’am!”
