Year 10 students work with busy bees
YEAR 10 agricultural science students have been getting hands-on experience during their Term 4 apiculture unit.
The students have been learning about bee biology and beekeeping in theory lessons and have been handling our calm bees during practical lessons.
Honey produced from the school hives is available for purchase from the student resource scheme office in 1kg and 500g containers.
2018 spaghetti bridge competition
GRANITE Belt Primary Schools descended upon Stanthorpe State High to compete in the annual spaghetti bridge competition.
This year Thulimbah State School took out award for the strongest bridge, as well as the most efficient bridge.
Broadwater State School won the award for the lightest bridge to support 500g.
Glen Aplin State School competitors should look to study architectural degrees at university in the future, as they created the most aesthetically pleasing bridge.
The spaghetti bridge competition, organised by the technology/engineering department, meets many of the Australian curriculum elements for technology but there was much more than just learning and building with spaghetti taking place - there was lots of eating spaghetti too with the Year 11 Certificate II in Hospitality and Kitchen Operations students cooking up a bolognaise feast.
