Every year the students of San Pedro High School get to showcase to the public what they have learnt throughout the scholastic year. On Friday, March 23, 2012, San Pedro High School hosted its annual open day and students showcased different projects for all to enjoy.
Students had been preparing for several weeks and their hard work finally paid off as many who attended the open day enjoyed all the presentations. Students were divided into groups to work together on several projects and they displayed their strong knowledge on the subject assigned to them.
During open day, visitors enjoyed various presentations such as, cultural presentations as part of a Spanish class; having live puppies, dogs, insects and even a chicken for a biology presentation. Third Form physics students demonstrated how to make a rocket with a recycled plastic bottle, water and pressurized air.
Other cool projects were the Ruben’s Tube (is a physics experiment demonstrating a standing wave. It shows the relationship between sound waves and sound pressure) and The Mouse Trap car (demonstrates several topics in physics); and also the math room was a fun one to visit as primary school students got a chance to solve math problems in a fun educational way.
The hard work and dedication of the students was visible as they all properly explained their projects very fluently and with much ease. Congratulations to all the students and teachers of San Pedro High School for once again hosting a great open day for all to enjoy.
