Stu­dents, par­ents and teach­ers at St Paul’s Pri­mary School were given a rare glimpse of the stars, moon and plan­ets at their sun­downer last Fri­day night.

The St Paul’s sun­downer had mu­sic, a disco and a makeshift ob­ser­va­tory. The chil­dren got to see Jupiter, Mars, Saturn through tele­scopes pro­vided by St Paul’s sci­ence teacher Ja­cob Win­dle, par­ents and stu­dents.

Mr Win­dle said the night was a great suc­cess.

“We also had a good look at fea­tures of the moon,” Mr Win­dle said.

“About 150 kids got the see the rings around Saturn and par­ents were also ex­cited.”

St. Paul’s holds reg­u­lar sun­down­ers so par­ents, stu­dents and teach­ers can come to­gether in a re­laxed man­ner and so­cialise.
