Last updated 1:01 PM on 6 August 2015
Personal Interest Projects (PIPs) are undertaken with the aim of  developing  students' skills in independent learning, research, higher order thinking and time management skills.  
 
This annual project allows students the freedom to research, learn and create projects on a topic of personal interest to them.  
 
This year's topics included a vortex cannon, a working model of an Archimedes screw, research into  human anatomy,  watercolour and acrylic art and a guinea pig retreat, just to name a few.  
 
The PIPs were demonstrated, (and eaten in the case of some cake designs and decorations) during week 4 when parents and family were invited into the school to celebrate Year 8's achievements.
