Staff at Lyneham Primary School have created this fabulous space-themed corridor for the school community for National Science Week. We love the 'Elements of a Successful Learner' display and astronaut photo station, but check out the solar system black-out tunnel - complete with glowing sun! Needless to say, this display has caused a BUZZ of excitement with students. This is another great example of the innovative and engaging science learning practices used by our wonderful staff across ACT public schools.

Our #photooftheweek comes from Ainslie School where today members of the Australian Olympic Team, students and dignitaries gathered to launch the 'Olympics Unleashed' program in the ACT! Here Olympic basketballer and University of Canberra Capitals star Marianna Tolo gets in some dribbling practice with some enthusiastic students!
