Halloween is a holiday celebrated in the U.S., Canada and the British Isles on October 31st where people dress in costumes and children go door to door asking for candy. An example of Halloween is when children dress as ghosts and witches and go to neighbor’s doors saying “Trick or treat!” (Dictionary definition)
Pumpkins are commonly carved into decorative lanterns called jack-o’-lanterns.

CRE8TE THE FUTURE
Recently St Robert’s hosted a STEAM Day (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics) where 15 students from each of our four Parish School participated in two workshops.
In the first workshop, students were encouraged to use the principles of computer coding to navigate their driverless cars along the alphabet highway whilst avoiding hazards such as landmines.
In the second workshop, students designed and created their own board games. Based on the popular game ‘Operation’, they used the principles of basic circuitry to power the buzzers and lights.
This was a great day with students discovering, collaborating and problem solving together, and they excitedly took lots of new ideas back to their own schools to share.
