Bottle Rocket Competition & Stargazing Night

On the evening of Wednesday November 10th Settlers Primary School held its annual Bottle Rocket Competition and Stargazing Evening on the school oval. This event has always been well attended by our school community and this year was no exception, with hundreds turning out on a perfect night to launch rockets and observe the night sky.

The Bottle Rocket competition was a huge success with a huge variety of designs and decorations on display. The rocket designs are improving every year and the competition just gets better and better.

The Astronomy Society of WA (ASWA) astronomers found some great features for us to look at through their telescopes including the Moon, Jupiter, Saturn and Venus.
Thank you to all the families that supported this event and made it such a successful night.
The students got so much out of it and really enjoyed the opportunity to view space through the telescopes.
