Year Three Students

Our Year Three students have participated in a Scitech Alcoa Maths Enrichment program this year.  This term, the program culminated in the students holding a cake stall for everyone at Parkfield.  Wonderful treats were created and sold out on the day.  The students participated in many measuring, calculating and problem solving activities during their preparation for the cake stall.  The Year 3 students used their profits to purchase  a variety of board games, which they kindly donated to the library for the use of all students.
