Fun Way Of Raising Funds

On Thursday last week, Cowaramup Primary School organised an adventure fun run to raise funds for its P & C. All the students participated in laps around the oval with several obstacle courses incorporated into the run. These included tunnels, tyres and a waterslide. The school managed to raise more than $6000. Parents also lent a hand in organising the day’s activities.

Wacky Experiments Amaze

A “Mentos fountain”, erupting volcanoes and glowing celery were some of the crazy scientific experiments recently showcased at Margaret River Independent School’s Science Fair. Organised by the year 2/3 under the supervision of their teacher Kylie Chatto, the experiments impressed students, teachers and parents. Every child had selected their own experiment for the event, testing and trying it at home with parents’ guidance before showcasing it to the audience.

I am married and live on a farm near Margaret River with my wife, daughter and son. I set up The Margaret River Guide to assist people coming to Margaret River Western Australia to easily find what they are looking for.
