Luke's Poppas Marble Machine

Luke's pop took 2 and a half years to make this incredible marble machine. It uses all types of simple machines and we all thoroughly enjoyed watching the marbles take many different paths as they went round and round the marble machine. A big thank you to Luke and his poppa.

Science Fair Winners

Oakura School Year 4 to 6 team won the $500 prize for the most entries at the recent science fair. All the students worked very hard to create their poster boards and models related to energy in Taranaki. We are proud of each and every one of them. Special mention to Holly for coming 4th and Sam and Robert for winning best poster board. Awesome effort!

Science Fair Success

Holly won 4th prize at the Science Fair last week with her poster board and model that explained how solar energy works. She created a fantastic model of a classroom and even hand painted the students and teacher that feature in her model. A well deserved result Holly. Proud of you.
