Staff, students. parents and governors attended this wonderful event that started with a warm welcome address by Mr Smith, Head of Science. There were presentations by our Y10 Astronomy students including: The Space Race, The Apolo 11 Mission, Extra Terrestrial Life, Black Holes and Dark Matter. We are extremely proud of the enthusiasm and professionalism of our students' who did a tremendous job in making the talks really interesting. Hot dogs were served in the 'cloudbase' garden and light refreshments were served in the Sixth Form Centre. Everyone had the opportunity to view the observatory and the telescopes set up on the field as the sun set on the horizon.
We look forward to future events on the theme of astronomy and viewing the universe with the new telescope.
The Science Staff took the opportunity to extend sincere appreciation and thanks to Mr Fletcher for his contribution to the project.
