Exploring beyond the four walls of the classroom and getting a closer look of the vast cosmos, was done through an evening telescopic observation session.
Following workshops were conducted in the school:
Grade 1-2- MYSTERIOUS MOON- In this evening session, students learnt about the different phases of the Moon and the reason behind their occurance through a digital story. They then observed the Moon through a 200mm dobsonian mount reflector telescope.
Grade 3- Grade 11- CELESTIAL RENDEZVOUS WITH THE SKY – In this evening session, students learnt about our nearest celestial neighbour- LUNA (moon) and Planets.
