Junior Secondary Meet & Greet

25/02/2016

On Tuesday 16 February at 6pm, parents of year 7 and 8 students at Home Hill State High School were invited to the schools’ official “Junior Secondary Meet and Greet BBQ”. During the day these students were treated to brilliant images of flames and prominences of our Sun through astronomer Rob Black’s scopes. These scopes have filters so that the Sun can be viewed safely. The barbeque was to be followed by an astronomy evening gazing at the stars. Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties with the main telescope, and swarms of mosquitoes on the school oval, the astronomy aspect of the night had to cut short and postponed, however the BBQ continued on.

The main intent of the evening was for parents to meet and make initial contact with teachers in an informal setting and get some feedback to how their student is settling in for 2016. The event was well attended by both teachers, parents and students as it was the perfect opportunity to put a few faces to names and also to meet the recently appointed principal.

The casual atmosphere on the night provided an appropriate setting for the purpose of a most productive “Meet and Greet”.   Finally, a big thank you also needs to go to Mr Robert Scalia and Mrs Roslyn Gall for their organisation of this event and for the catering, as these events require considerable ‘behind the scene’ preparation.
