Kentish Express Ashford & District - - School Report -

Mar­tian pasta and Uniden­ti­fied Fruity Ob­jects (UFOs) were just some of the mouth-wa­ter­ing treats on of­fer for school chil­dren dur­ing a spe­cial space-themed dinner.

Young­sters at Tow­ers School in Ash­ford, held the event in The Lunch Pad can­teen to com­mem­o­rate the re­turn of Com­man­der Tim Peake to Earth.

The Faver­sham Road school has been f ol­low­ing Tim’s progress since he started his Prin­cipia mis­sion in De­cem­ber; live stream­ing his launch into space and his space walk on screens around the school.

Year 7 stu­dents also sent video ques­tions to Tim as part of a cos­mic class­room com­pe­ti­tion.

Science teacher Claire Ward said: “It’s been lovely to hear stu­dents from all years dis­cussing ev­ery­thing that Tim has been up to.

“They were par­tic­u­larly im­pressed by his pre­sent­ing an Os­car and run­ning the marathon in space.”
