    Week 2 THE INVENTION KEY
    On my trip to Wellington during the holidays, I ate the best Lamington I have ever eaten in my life.
    A Lamington is a sponge cake in the shape of a cuboid, coated in a layer of traditionally chocolate icing then desiccated coconut. Lamingtons are commonly found in Australasian outlets such as cafes, lunch bars, bakeries, and supermarkets. The raspberry variety is more common in New Zealand, while a lemon variety has been encountered in Australia.
    The chocolate coating is a thin mixture, into which cubes of sponge cake (one cookbook states 4 cm per side) are dipped, and the chocolate is absorbed into the outermost layers of the sponge where it sets. (Similarly, the raspberry jelly is absorbed into the sponge.) The cubes are then covered with coconut and left to set.
    They have traditionally been popular as fund raisers for Australian youth groups such as Scouts, Guides and churches to the extent that such fund raisers are called "Lamington drives".
    Friday 21 July 2006 was designated as National Lamington Day in Australia.
    In September 2006, the National Trust of Queensland named the Lamington one of Queensland's favourite icons.
    The Lamington is named after Charles Cochrane-Baillie, 2nd Baron Lamington, who served as Governor of Queensland from 1896 to 1901. According to legend, Lamingtons were first served in Toowoomba when Lord Lamington took his entourage to Harlaxton House to escape the steamy heat of Brisbane. The Lamingtons' chef at Queensland's Government House, Armand Gallad, was called upon at short notice to provide something to feed unexpected guests. According to the Melbourne Age newspaper, Gallad cut up some left over French vanilla sponge cake baked the day before, dipped the slices in chocolate and set them in coconut (an ingredient not widely used in European cooking at that time). Lady Lamington's guests then asked for the recipe.
    Ironically, Lord Lamington was believed to have hated the dessert that had been named in his honour, referring to them as "those bloody poofy woolly biscuits".
    You are to design a machine for icing lamingtons.

    Room 3's year 6, 7 and 8's went on camp again this year. This time to Rotorua. We had plenty of activities planned, many at the Ranch Lakes Camp itself. But our first port of call was the Agrodome, just North of Rotorua. We watched the sheep show which was funny and informative. Well worth checking out even if you do come off a farm like most of us do. Adam and Kendall had the chance to hand
    milk a cow.
    Isn't she a magnificent specimen?
    Kendall looks pretty good too.

    After the show we all got to get up close and personal with some wild and woolly creatures. Some wilder than others, some woollier. And some of us more up close and very personal. Who's checking you out Bradlee? And what's Grayson checking out?
    And on to our luxury accomodation. It served the purpose and we didn't mind sharing with the odd mouse...well it was very chilly outside.

    We visited the Rotorua Museum, where we watched
    (and felt) a movie about the Tarawera eruption.
    The whole theatre shook.
    No one will own up to being the screamer.
    Then we experienced shaking of a different type.
    Our own.
    Abseiling 22 meters down to the water.
    Where are all the smiles people?
