The Life Education Van has been visiting our School for the last week and the students have thoroughly enjoyed their time in the Life Education Van. Year 3's topic was "All Systems Go" where the students joined their class on a fascinating tour of the human body. Travelling through the blood, the students explored and discovered how magnificent the human body really is. They learnt about the functions of various body systems and how to keep these systems working well.
