Today is Children in Need Day; we decided to make a line of coins to raise money. Lots of people came in and donated coins for us to put on our line. On Monday we will measure the line and count the money.
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.
