We were smothered in smoke haze today from serious bushfires. The bushfire season has at least another month to go so we have a long summer ahead of us. Sadly 9 of the fires are thought to be caused by arsonists. The smoke is a real problem for people with breathing difficulties, asthma and the very young and old.

One of my grade 4 students is reading Treasure Trackers books published by Blake. She has just finished 'Quest for the Birdman' about Easter Island and today she put the finishing touches to an Easter Island statue she created with air-dried clay. Photo below.
