The Dark Side: Canterbury Astronomy Club – New Venue!

Well over 100 excited students from right across Years 5-12 came to our first ‘The Dark Side’ Canterbury Astronomy Club meeting for 2022 on Monday afternoon.

Because of the high numbers, we are changing the venue to the Discovery Centre Junior Library, which offers a much larger function space.

Members who have already signed up to our Astronomy Club, will have received an email with these details.

Other students in Years 5-12 are still most welcome to join!

The best way to register is to visit our official website –

Then click How to Join, then fill in the Student Information Form online.

Then just turn up – after school every Monday afternoon in the Discovery Centre Junior Library.

And don’t forget to join our Public Facebook Group – Canterbury Dark Side.

Lightsaber training coming this Monday! And cookies as always…

NB: We are still looking for a few more senior students who can act as activity and meeting leaders.

If interested, please contact Mrs Pendreigh in the Secondary Library OR via her email –  OR just come to a meeting and tell us you’d like to help out.

See you Monday!

Canterbury College
