Solar Eclipse

Partial Solar Eclipse.


The children had the wonderful opportunity to witness the partial eclipse of the sun on Friday 20th March.

After an informative assembly on the eclipse, given by Mrs.Brogan in the hall at 9.10 a.m., the children went out onto the front field at 9.30 a.m. to get an eyewitness view of this rare event. We were very lucky, in that the cloud cover was enough to filter out the sun's light but not thick enough the obscure its image. Therefore we all had a clear, safe image of the eclipse to view.

Apparently, the next partial solar eclipse will not be seen in the UK until 2026 and the the next full eclipse will be in 2090. I'd book your seats now!
