Eclipse Watch

Despite heavy cloud and very real prospect of not seeing the eclipse, students were taken out of their normal lessons and gathered together to experience the eclipse. There was a palpable excitement as students from years 7-13 discussed what the eclipse was and why it was happening and what we would expect to see.

 So what if it was cloudy?

Despite heavy cloud and very real prospect of not seeing the eclipse, students were taken out of their normal lessons and gathered together to experience the eclipse. There was a palpable excitement as students from years 7-13 discussed what the eclipse was and why it was happening and what we would expect to see.

Alas due to the heavy cloud, our experience was limited to a general darkness and a distinct drop in temperature. Students were then able to return to the classrooms and see footage of the eclipse in other parts of the country.

One student said ‘This was great. I wonder where I’ll be for the next eclipse. I will never forget coming out of the classroom to see this one.'
