Girls Activities at Notre Dame School

On Tuesday Year 5 were visited by 'Neil Armstrong' who talked about his experiences and thoughts when he, along with Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins travelled to the Moon.  The children had an insight into what it was like to walk on the Moon and were shown photos and videos of the trip.  They built their own rockets and in the afternoon they had a rocket launch demonstration before they were able to launch their own rockets into the sky.  What an exciting day!
