On Friday 20 March a partial total eclipse will be visible in the UK between 8:25 and 10:40 am, when the Moon will cover about 85% of the Sun.
While not as spectacular as a total solar eclipse, it will still cause a slight dimming of the sunlight.
The eclipse is a potential hazard for eyesight, particularly if viewed with filters not specifically made for solar observation. Unsafe filters include sunglasses, CDs and films. Observing the eclipse without appropriate protection, or with protection not designed for Sun observation, will cause permanent damage to the eyes. The damage does not cause pain, so it is especially dangerous as the body does not have the usual warning. We therefore suggest you warn your children about it.
Proper protection can be found for example at this link:
Unfortunately a full school observation is impractical. Therefore only a few selected boys from the 6th form will document the event for the school.
Important changes to the schedule.
7KB v 7RCG Now Monday 9th March 3.30 Please arrive promptly for this game. Some will stay and play in the next match
7KB v MW’s XI Now Monday 9th March 4.30
We will play both of these matches on the same day. The second match will start at about 4.30 apnd finish at about 5.30.
Is there anyone who has not been able to get into a team? We are approaching the end of the sequence of matches so it is important that you let me know if you have not had or will not have a chance to play.
I would like the captains of both 7KB and 7RCG to come and talk to me today or tomorrow.
