This afternoon was fantastic. You guys really nailed it, and your parents were an outstanding audience and brought so much knowledge and so many new perspectives and ideas into the Exhibition process. I am so glad that I had my Nikon camera with me today because I think it has helped me capture the atmosphere in the room this afternoon.

Share the photos with your parents, and if you want a high-quality copy of any of the photos you can download them from our Flickr account.

Ms. Ashley ran a session on stress with you today. What were the main things you got from it? What did it make you think about? What strategies did you pick up?

“Wow! They really did their homework!”

Work on the second circle tonight (the brown one) and gather as much information as you can from people around you after school, at home or in your building/neighbourhood, or even online.

Make a comment to describe what you did, who you spoke to, how you recorded the information and what you found out.
