Thornlands Thinkers


Thornlands State School operates an enrichment program titled ‘Thornlands Thinkers’.  This operates once a week for selected groups of children from Prep to Year 4.  Children are selected by their teachers based on class achievements and the collection of assessment data. 

The EngQuest Program is used as a base for our enrichment lessons. 

EngQuest, an initiative of Engineers Australia, provides an exciting way for students to participate in fun and educational engineering activities, involving Science, Mathematics and Technology. 

During 2013, students participated in a variety of projects including: designing, constructing and testing solar cookers, water wheels, catapults and straw bridges.

We also operated narrative writing enrichment activities for our young writers. ​
