The girls from Charlie and the Unicorns have told us to ask you guys
if you have any suggestions you want to give them such as songs, a book you want us to read, jokes ,fun things you have done in class or just something cool you want everyone else to hear about, then write it on a piece of paper with your name and room number on it, and pop it in their box in the library and they might be able to put it on the radio!!!!!! And you will be famous!!!Yay!!! This is your chance to have a say for what goes on the radio, because it is Halswell school radio, which means everyone can be involved!!!!!

The girls from JAK have put up a new recipe.



  • Canola Spray
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cups caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3/4 cups plain white flour
  • 1/4 cup cornflour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 80g canola spread
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 cup icing sugar
  • 1/3 cup desiccated coconut


Preheat oven to 190°C. Grease and line base of a 20cm square cake tin with baking paper.
Beat eggs with a pinch of salt. Add sugar and half of the vanilla.
Beat until thick and creamy. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, cornflour and baking powder. Add to egg mixture, then carefully fold through 60g melted dairy blend.
Pour cake mixture into prepared tin and bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Leave in tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire cake rack to cool. Cut into 20 squares. Meanwhile to make icing, dissolve cocoa in 1/3 cup boiling water. Place icing sugar in a medium size bowl. Add cocoa mixture, remaining canola blend and remaining vanilla essence. Stir well to combine.
Using a fork, skewer each cake square then spoon over warm icing to coat. Lightly sprinkle with coconut, then arrange on a lined baking tray and set aside.

Here’s a Chocolate Brownie Recipe
Makes 12 large pieces.
  • 175g butter, coarsely chopped
  • 175g dark cooking chocolate coarsely chopped
  • 1½ cups caster sugar
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup plain flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • Icing sugar to dust
1. Heat oven to 160ÂșC fan bake. Line a 17cm x 27cm slice tin with nonstick baking paper.
2. Place butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, or microwave for 2 to 3 minutes, to melt. Whisk until smooth, then stir in sugar and eggs.
3. Sift flour and cocoa powder together, then stir into chocolate mixture. Lastly, gently stir in chocolate chips.
4. Pour into prepared tin. Bake for 1 hour or until an inserted skewer comes out moist but clean. Cool, then remove from tin and cut into slices. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
Tip: If you want to add something extra to this mixture, stir half a cup of toasted nuts – such as peanuts, almonds or walnuts – into the mixture before baking or replace the chocolate chips with white chocolate bits for a change.
