Upper Primary students started their study of “Natural Disasters” by looking at the structure of the earth and making models to show the different strata. A practical experiment showing how a volcano erupts using play dough, baking powder, and colored vinegar generated much excitement and called for several repetitions by popular demand.
Paper Recycling The Lower Primary students experimented recycling paper. They followed the simple steps by first tearing used paper into small pieces, then soaking them in water overnight, and finally blending the mixture in a blender with more water. The mixture was poured into a large container and then scooped onto a fine mesh wired…
Ancient Egypt The Upper Primary class has been learning about daily life in Ancient Egypt.

Students in the Upper Primary class have started the new school year by studying the systems of the body. The brain is central to all functions and made a fascinating study. Brain hats were made to show the functions of different parts of the brain. Next week the lungs!
Healthy lungs are crucial to our well-being, and students in the upper primary class made working models of the lungs to demonstrate their function. There followed lively discussion as to the ways in which our lungs can be harmed and how to help keep them in good working order.
Child Center students have been participating in eLearning since March 23 since the onset of COVID 19. Although there may have been some reservations about the appropriateness of this way of teaching for young children, we have been amazed at its success. The students, with the support of their parents, adapted quickly to this new world, and teachers followed the normal classroom schedules as closely as possible with necessary adaptations of teaching material, classroom organization, and teaching techniques. The learning curve has been a positive one for both teachers and students, and there has been sound academic progress.
On Thursday February 27, 2020, Rose Marie Academy students staged an all
campus exhibition. The theme for this exhibition is Myths and Legends. Students
were asked to develop a personal response to this theme using a variety of
two and three dimensional materials including recyclables. Senior High students
created large scale images based on Norse Mythology for this event.
The Lower Primary students have been learning about weather. They have been studying wind and how it blows in different directions. Here the children are enjoying experimenting with weather vanes. For this experiment, the students made their own weather vanes using a pencil, paper, straw, and a pin. Each child had fun deciding whether the wind was blowing north, south, east or west.
