Constable Care and Pokemon Go

About | Contact Us The Pros and Cons of Pokemon Go By David Gribble, CCCSF CEO At the risk of being labelled the fun police, I’m going to say right up front that I think the new Pokemon Go augmented reality game probably comes with both positives and negatives. A new game craze for young people often attracts over-the-top community and media predictions of the harm it will inflict (think original paper-based Dungeons & Dragons or online RPG’s such as World of Warcraft), so I am not going to jump on the bandwagon and instead will wait to see the ramifications of its use for a while before passing judgement.

Issue 5 - Community Relations

Lunchtime musicians Drone video shoot App update Already the end of Term 1, it doesn't seem possible. See what your amazing students have been up to this week. Lunchtime musicians On Monday 4 April six students started off our Summer Series which will continue again in Term 4. There was an array of different performances, ages and instruments. Although students were nervous they performed really well and entertained the student body during lunch. The Summer Series is a relaxed performance opportunity and a chance for audience members to listen to some music during their lunch break. It was well received and I look forward to more performances later in the year. Caitlin Kuchel Year 7 – “Titanium" Feat.
