Constantine Celebrates Solar Eclipse

So we had been looking forward to this event for at least two weeks, and it lived up to the hype. By 0840 approximately 80 pupils, staff, parents and friends of the school were gathered on the school field armed with an array of safe ways to view the eclipse. These included pinhole cameras, colanders, welding masks, buckets of water and an over-the-head-box. At around 0920 most of the school were there – we asked for silence and awaited the moment of peak coverage, and it suddenly became cold and dark, while the birds sang evensong.

It was a memorable moment that I am sure none of us will forget.
