We were so fortunate in having JJ, Heloise, Emily and Max visit us from Auckland university to share their vast knowledge on Space. We were treated to a slideshow of many interesting facts and figures about the solar system and then JJ arranged for some children to take up the positions of planets around the sun. He showed us how the dwarf planets, Ceres, and Pluto fitted into the picture.
After the general talk in the PAC room we returned to our classes and each of the astrophysicists joined us in our classrooms to answer our many questions. JJ came to our class and he explained much more of what we were wanting to know. We were so fortunate to have such special visitors at our school.
