Pinjarra Primary visits UWA

Pinjarra Primary School’s Year Seven class visited the sundial with their teacher Jan Middleton, sister of Iain Middleton, who our regular readers will recall as he of the sundial construction fame.

After Iain described the art of mosaics and design on the sundial to the students, Dr Peter Kovesi explained the mathematics and science with the aid of what appeared to be a large hamster ball.

The Year Sevens were then taken on a tour of the university grounds by Uni Role Model student volunteers. For many of the kids from Pinjarra their first visit to UWA made a big impression.

“It’s a much bigger place than I thought.”
Aspiring marine biologist and/or forensic scientist Amy Attwood (12).
“I liked the architecture of the place and there is so much here.”
Connor Healy (12).

Pinjarra Primary School eventually hopes to attract sponsorship to be able to design and construct its own sundial on a large scale.
