Caron, our ICT technician, came today to help us set up "maratech" so that we can try video conferencing in school before we do it with people in other schools. She showed Vladik and Ross how they can set up the computers themselves so they can use it. Everybody liked seeing themselves in the webcam and drawing on the whiteboard.

We all tried new activities which we wouldn't normally do: tag rugby, kurling, golf, athletics, basketball and bowls. We would like to thank the Active Schools' Team for organising such a good day for us.
