One of the common complaints amongst students is a lack of practical application of the knowledge and skills learnt in class. At St Charles College, we address this by providing as many opportunities as possible for our boys to put their acquired theory into practice. This year, Mr Gareth Barry and a group of boys embarked on a project which saw them building a telescope for the School. This project has provided an excellent opportunity for the boys to put their theory into practice and to learn about the fabrication processes involved.
After many hours of work, our boys have been rewarded with the chance to view the heavens with an instrument made by their own hands, as well as leaving something tangible for future generations of learners to enjoy.
