Real Life Adventures – Curiosity
Last Friday we had our ‘Curiosity’ adventure. Everyone had a great time learning about what is involved in a live performance. We paid a visit to the Circus Oz headquarters in Collingwood where we watched a live show. Most of us were in fits of laughter as the three actors put on a performance. Their level of skill, balance, strength and animation was incredible! Afterwards we had a turn in the spotlight as we were given some training in circus skills. Some had a try at juggling, hula hooping and acrobatics. To finish off the adventure we ventured backstage to see where costumes and props were made and stored. They had quite a collection, mostly handmade! Check out all the photos by clicking here....Read More

Real Life Adventures – Horse Power
Last Friday we had our Horse Power adventure. Everyone had a great time learning about these beautiful creatures. For some students, this was the first time they had seen a horse up close and touched it. Before riding the horses, we experienced what it was like to care for them by brushing and combing them. After building up our confidence in an enclosed area we went on a trail ride through the bush. We then swapped roles and felt what it was like being a horse and pulling a carriage. Being a sunny day, we jumped into some canoes and splashed around in the water to see what it was like to pull a load in water. Check out all the photos by clicking here.
John Monash Science School Exhibition Night
Last Thursday, four students from BHPS were invited to the John Monash Science School Exhibition Night to present their own research project. Our students completed two projects. The girls worked together to make two batteries; one using a potato and the other a lemon. Their project involved the comparison of volts produced by the potato and the lemon. According to their research, the lemon produced more volts than the potato. Meanwhile the boys wanted to witness more action, so they observed the chemical reaction a Mentos makes with soft drink. Testing four drinks; lemonade, diet lemonade, Coke and diet Coke, they wanted to find out which drink makes the best rocket after adding a Montos. According to their research, diet Coke generates the best reaction. Want to view their video, click here
