It was Coburg North’s best kept secret – and worth the veil of secrecy to see Miss Aicher’s face when she found out at Saturday’s grand opening that the tyre maze will henceforth be known as Kay’s Maze.
You can see Miss Aicher’s reaction in the photo below (she is the one clapping her hand and laughing in the centre of this photo!)
Miss Aicher taught at Coburg North for more than 20 years before retiring two years ago. She is still a familiar face around the school and continues to help out with many classes.
One of Miss Aicher’s best known phrases is ‘maths is everywhere’, and the tyre maze demonstrates this as it has lots of different maths-related activities for students to try out.
The maze has been a labour of love for the school council and has been many years in the making.
One of those driving the project from the start, Joe Dupuche, helped Miss Aicher at Saturday’s ceremony to officially open the maze, which we hope will be enjoyed by Coburg North students for years to come.
Thanks to Annabelle for designing the fantastic maze signage, Joe, Blair, Ray and Sebastian and the rest of school council for driving the project and all the parents and students who helped out at working bees.
