TERM 1 2019 FULL
TO REGISTER YOUR INTEREST FOR TERM 2 PLEASE CONTACT US TO JOIN THE WAIT LIST.
Thank you for your interest in after school Science at St Cecilia’s. Please find information and booking details for this offering below. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like any additional information.
When: Monday afternoons - Term 1 2019 (First session Mon 4th Feb - last session Mon 8th April).
Timing: Straight after school until 4:30pm. *5pm pick-up option available.
Where: The year 5/6 room St Cecilia’s.
What: Fun, hands on science experiments, activities and demonstrations.
Throughout the term the children will get to create their own experiments as well as try out some fascinating science equipment straight from the lab. All activities will help develop skills required for “Working Scientifically” and “Working Technologically” whilst covering various topics of the “Knowledge and Understanding” component of the Syllabus (e.g. physical world, living world, material world etc.).
The goal is to help inspire and motivate the next-generation of critical thinkers by sharing and instilling a passion for science. Ultimately, we want to ignite young minds to think critically, equip them with a problem-solving mindset, and foster an inquiry-based learning culture where asking "why" is encouraged.
Who: Sessions are designed and run by Dr Alana Wylie who holds a PhD in immunology and parasitology and has extensive experience working with children. Alana and any Eye Heart Science staff hold current Working With Children Check (WWCC) approval.
Cost: $220 per term *(+$50 if optional late pick-up is selected).
What to pack: Please pack some afternoon tea for your children as there will be time for snacks and a quick break before we begin. Lab coats will be provided during the sessions to ensure school uniforms don’t become part of the experiments. Lab coats can also be purchased for $19.95 - see the Science Shop when ready to check out.
*5pm pick-up option available. Please note the formal session and experiments will conclude at 4:30pm - a 5pm pick-up option is available for convenience and to assist with afternoon logistics where needed. If you are interested in the later pick-up please add this to your cart when checking out.
Please note: Places are limited and bookings will be closed once capacity has been reached.
