Launch Day: "Gnarly Problems!!"
Our whole school Inquiry for 2017 kicked off with a day of creative problem solving. We had newspaper caterpillar wheels, balloon challenges, mystery minefields and the mighty water challenge complete with a water vessel market place. Every team that demonstrated collaboration, critical thinking and communication skills won a puzzle piece to complete the whole school jigsaw.
What a great start to our fabulous Inquiry.
Welcome Back: 2017 !!!

Cross Country in May
Another beautiful Autumn day for our cross country. We are always impressed with how the children Choose to be More by challenging themselves to run the longest course.
Our 'big buddies' are always at hand to run alongside and support their younger friends.
Clarkville 'Tryathlon' 2016
Our students 'chose to be more' in the annual Clarkville 'Tryathlon' 2016. They could complete the event in teams or individually. We were impressed with their ability and willingness to give it a go. Thanks so much to all the parents who came along and helped around the course - we couldn't have done it without you! To those who came to support your student - thanks for coming along and being their personal cheer squad. For those who weren't able to make it, maybe we will get to see you next time but until then, here's a movie trailer that one of our talented Aspire students (Caleb Radford) put together. Enjoy!
Kids, staff, parents and our local community spell out 'More' on the field. We will be connecting with as many people as we can - locally, nationally and globally with the launch of Clarkville Live this year.
Our first marketing mission was to get as many people to Clarkville as we could to break the world hopping record!!
