Fire spectacular wows Central celebration
Celebrate Braidwood Central School was a fitting climax to Education Week 2012. The school was a hive of activity last Thursday as the students and teachers celebrated all that is wonderful about public education.
The highlight of the night was the Dracula Spectacular fire sculpture as a precursor for the drama production which will be staged at the beginning of term four.
The large Dracula effigy frame was made in the metalwork shop and filled with dry brush for maximum flammability. It was a windy night but thanks to Danny King from the rural fire service who kept things in check.
Visitors to the school enjoyed the open class rooms highlighting the work students have done this year. The Maths room was a popular venue with maths games, puzzles and the ever popular origami cubes.
Catering was done by the hospitality students and visitors enjoyed hot lamb rolls, falafel and baklava as well as expertly rolled sushi.
The teachers challenge was extremely popular. Visitors had to guess who belonged to what objects displayed in clear plastic bags.
The true spirit of the school was exemplified with Sullivan Kovacs from year 7 and Tim Callan from year 11 teaming up and after 2 hrs came out the winners having guessing 44 of the 50 teachers.
