OFFICIAL OPENING OF SCIENCE LABORATORY
As well as being invited to give two astronomy presentations for the junior and senior students at Our Lady of Sion School on Wednesday 11 October 2017, I was honoured and delighted to be called upon to officially open the School's new 1B Science Laboratory.
Cutting the ribbon just as the fires made a bid for the lab ceiling. What fun!
Flanked by two ominous looking trays, each home to an unknown bubbling chemical, I somewhat tentatively approached the official red ribbon, and as I prised the scissors apart, so two lab technicians ignited the said liquid, sending two enormous plumes of fire punching towards the ceiling! What fun! As my hair lifted skyward so I declared the laboratory officially open!
It was such a pleasure to meet the Headmaster, Dr Simon Orchard, Head of Science, Colin, Marketing Director, Jo Beard, and all the inspiring students of Our Lady of Sion School, and I wish them many happy years of education and fun in their amazing new laboratory before they head out into the world to make their scientific mark, as I am sure they will.
Thank you one and all.
