Students, staff and parents cheered with excitement during Mt Tarcoola Primary School’s annual rocket launch.
Fourteen rockets were launched from the school oval on November 30, under the guidance of teacher Brett Normington and his class of Year 6 and 7 students.

“It’s really engaging and handson — an experience the students will never forget,” he said.
