by Miriam Kroker - Thursday, 18 June 2015, 4:15 PM

The last Cheese has arrived! When I announced to 9 Blue that this would be our final edition, the students were falling over themselves to contribute. The June Issue has two editors! I would like to thank Emma Kellett-Lunney and Jack Moeser for their hard work this month. They have worked with their classmates and other members of the Hillbrook community to collate this Issue. 

In this edition, you can read about the Jurassic Zoo, Year 9 Camp, what's happening in Design & Technology, Reader's cup and so much more!
