ASTHMA

Massey University is conducting a study looking at the different types of asthma in children aged 8-18. The aim of the study is to improve the understanding of childhood asthma and develop better treatment options for all asthmatics. The study involves a lung function test and a short questionnaire. If your child is between 8 and 18 years old, the researchers would be very grateful if you could take part. They are looking for children with and without asthma to participate. Please contact: Jean Feary McKenzie

SCIENCE- HELLO CAFE

Last week was the final session of Hello Cafe, where the girls learnt about electricity and about how some people in the world do not have it available like we do.  They each assembled a Solar Buddy, a solar powered lamp, which will be sent along with the letter they wrote, to a student in a community overseas. "This was my favourite activity because I got to give something I made to other people around the world."  Muhmina, Room 5. A new Science study centre will be starting up on the 12th April students interested have bought a letter home today.
