Year 6 Chinese
During Term 3, Year 6 students have been studying a ‘Food and Drink’ unit in Chinese. They have been learning common vocabulary, how to express likes/dislikes towards certain food/drink in Chinese language, food culture, how to order in a Chinese restaurant and Chinese eating etiquette. To celebrate students’ achievement and to further develop their understanding and knowledge of Chinese food culture, a special meal was arranged in class. Each student received an individual pre-packed Chinese meal (spring roll, dumpling, chicken stick, fried rice and Asian style cupcake) in an eco-box. Our guest, Mr Hu, demonstrated a Chinese Tea Ceremony. Students enjoyed practising their speaking skills, eating with chopsticks and tasting the Chinese tea. A special thank you to Mr Hu for the tea and to Wang’s restaurant for the delicious food.

Cows Create Careers
As a part of our Cows Create Careers unit, last week all Year 8 students visited Mr Tom Lindsay’s dairy farm to find out about the processes involved in the dairy industry. We learned about feeding, milking and breeding cows in Tasmania. Thanks to Mr Lindsay from all involved at Scotch Oakburn College.
Year 7 Bubble Tea Week
In a fun way to end the term, Year 7 enjoyed Bubble Tea week. Bubble Tea was delivered from Chichi Cafe that each student had ordered in Chinese.
