Our school has participated in the SAASTA Astronomy Quiz for Grade 7 learners 3 years in a row. We are very proud that our team has made it to the National finals in 2010 and 2011 - we are hoping to uphold this newfound tradition!  All Grade 7 learners are given an opportunity to take part by writing an Astronomy quiz  - after the top 4 achievers are chosen. The rest of the year is spent receiving study material and many gruelling hours are invested in acquiring fascinating knowledge of everything to do with outer-space!  In order to qualify for the National round, the team must achieve the highest score in all 4 rounds at the Science Centre at the Northwest University.  Miss Kennedy has a passion for all things Astronomical and is already looking out for possible participants for 2012.
