Prep 4 Star Gazing

On Wednesday the Star Dome made its biennial visit to Birkdale to coincide with Prep 4's topic on Space.

The boys sat outside the dome, shoes off and with faces displaying excitement and anticipation. Inside the dome hushed excitement and awe rippled through the boys as Richard took them on a tour of our solar system, a guided look at the sky at night and a visit to the International Space Station. 

Over the hour the boys were able to ask questions and on leaving the dome still had more questions about life in space, which they are now following up with research in class. Prep 3 also had the same experience in the dome, which will be followed up in Prep 4.
