Fortunately a team of Year 6 students were able to use their scientific skills to identify from whose shoes a streak of brown shoe polish had come from and find the thief...Mr Kamitsuka from our very own science department!
At least that's what the evidence seemed to show.... until Thursday morning when a note was left in the classroom, admitting the shoe polish had been left there to put the blame on Mr Kamitsuka by the real thief, who signed the letter, in Chinese, with “The Black Cat”. Luckily the thief underestimated the determination of our young scientists, who were able to use chromatography skills yet again to test the Chinese teachers' pens against the one used to write the note. Sadly, whilst they were able to rule out several of the teachers, they were left with two possible suspects whose pens could have written the note... Su Laoshi and Chen Laoshi - the two Year 6 tutors!
With no way to determine which was the thief, the students can now only wait until the thief makes another error. But they will be keeping a very close eye on their two tutors - waiting for that moment that they underestimates the brilliance of the Year 6 students yet again!
