Fosters 13, 14 and 15

Foster 10-12 grew so fast they were only with us a week! They've gone back to Cat Haven to find their forever homes and we've taken in these cuties. The all have very sheep-like fur so we have named them Shaun, Russell and Dolly after some famous sheep!

Fosters 10, 11 and 12

Finally the cat population in the house has exceeded the humans. In fact the cat population has doubled with these cuties from Cat Haven. They are in foster with us for a couple of weeks to fatten up. Left to right: Star, Harley (so named after the motorbike for his purring) and Pepper-Pot. It's going to be hard to give these up when the time comes!




We still have our adult foster cat Tiki and our own cats Holly and Columbus. It's a full house!


Columbus left and Holly, waiting outside the foster kitten room hoping we'll let them in.

Science of Forces and Energy

Today we have been working on simple energy transfer machines with Mystery Science. The kids loved it and will keep expanding their machines tomorrow. Here's a couple of slow motion videos showing how the machines worked.

Foster #9

This is Tiki our 9th foster cat from Cat Haven. She's very timid so I could only get this picture with a zoom lens. The shelter is overflowing with cats as we are now in kitten season. Adults are free to adopt right now so get yourself down there!

Maritime History

We recently popped down to Fremantle to see the Pompeii exhibition at the Maritime Museum and to visit the Shipwrecks Museum. The children learnt loads about how clues from the past fit together to give us the story of the time.


The wreck of the Batavia was very impressive, the huge piece on display is just one small section of the ship.

We also passed the Round House where we saw some amazing street art and a couple of convicts.
