The Year 1 students visited the Sir Thomas Planetarium in Brisbane this week. As this was many of the students' first excursion the anticipation was high!

The journey began with a fun bus trip to Mt Cootha, early nervousness was soon forgotten as we drove up the M1. Once at the Botanical Gardens we had a perfect picnic lunch and a chance to stretch our legs before the big moment.

At the Planetarium we were fortunate to see a REAL spacesuit, meteors, model space crafts and International Space Station.

The walkway to our sitting area had amazing pictures and facts about all the planets we had been learning about. Once inside the theatre we flew through space visiting the sun, moon and planets.

Our day was OUT OF THIS WORLD!
