Viewing of solar eclipse

On the 9 th of March, 2016, the Science Department planned an eventful program for the students. It was a day whereby the students will be able to catch a partial solar eclipse. In order to build up to the day of the eclipse event, students were given bite-size information on how the solar eclipse occurs as well as how often we get to see it.


All the students got a chance to view the solar eclipse through a pinhole camera comprising of an iPad tied together in a box. This method of viewing ensured that the students’ safety was not compromised.


Overall, the event was a successful one as students managed to catch the occurrence of the solar eclipse in school. The following are some of the comments made by the students:


I saw the solar eclipse and it was very beautiful. I was very excited to see it.

I learnt that the moon can cover the sun completely. I enjoyed the activity.

It’s a rare experience and I have not seen it in my past 10 years. I felt excited and puzzled as to how this happens.

It was interesting because we don’t get to see it very often. It was an exciting moment.
