If the answer to this question is a resounding YES, then gain inspiration from a 15 year old Caulfield student.
Reported in last Saturday’s Age newspaper, Will Stamp, a Year 11 student at John Monash Science School, discovered a variable star using his home computer and an interstate telescope.
He kept a keen eye on his patch of sky for six months, during which time he studied more than 250 images. The amateur skywatcher was looking for stars with a fluctuating light intensity – the hallmark of stars that change in brightness, which are known as variable stars.”

After a considerable amount of effort and with the grateful assistance of some strong hands, the start of 2017 has seen the revamp of the Gregory Fish Library, our senior school library, fondly known as the GFL.
The makeover has indeed given new meaning to the term ‘flipped classroom’ as quite literally, the mass of student desks on one side of the old library have swapped places with the shelves holding the wide range of resources in our various book collections. Resources are easy to locate and a friendly library staff member is always around to lend a hand.
We are open for business as always: Monday-Thursday 8.00am-6.30pm and Friday 8.00am-4.00pm (except for morning recess daily & Wednesday afternoon when we close from 12.30-3.30pm).
