Students spend the day gazing into deep space

IT was a rare day at school when star-gazing was actually encouraged.

Grade five students from Coffs Harbour's St Augustine's Primary School were treated to an astronomy and space workshop with David Reneke.

As part of the International Year of Astronomy, students participated in a workshop yesterday to learn how to use a telescope and what to look for in space.

They were also able to handle a genuine meteorite. After the 'lesson', the school was given a $2000 grant for participating in the workshop as a part of the Austar for Schools Science Month. The school also received a telescope and a teacher's resource pack.
