On Tuesday this week, we held our first Star Party of the year in conjunction with Bolton Astronomical Society and the Ogden Trust.

Families from local primaries (and Sharples students) visited the observatory and took part in stargazing activities indoors to find out more about constellations and the winter sky.

Members of Bolton astronomical Society presented the school with a telescope that will be loaned out to students to use at home.

The Ogden Trust provided hot drinks and pasties for our visitors throughout the evening.

Thanks to Mr Singadia for organising the event, the BAS and the Ogden Trust for their support.
