Dear families,

What an inspiring Science Week that was!

Marine Biology came to life last week through the many experiments, dissections, inspiring speakers and field trips. The highlights were the secondary visit to Vilanova port and the primary visit to the Cram, a marine conservation centre.

Special thanks to Sonia Tarrida, a vet and Olive Tree parent, who came to speak on animal behaviour.

Thank you also to all families who came to the Science Fair and Science competitions on Friday afternoon. Fabulous marine costumes and cakes inspired by the sea!
