Stoney Creek students Blast Off with Bondar

Ten students from St. Agnes School had the chance to meet Roberta Bondar last month at the Blast Off with Canadian Astronaut Roberta Bondar philharmonic concert by Boris Brott at Hamilton Place.

With the help of the school’s teacher librarian, Dan Harrington, classroom teachers Steve Kolenko and Steve Docherty and ESL teacher Julie Parco, the Grade six students at St. Agnes had completed cereal box research projects on various Canadian astronauts.

Brott and Bondar took the time after the performance to meet 10  students who had chosen Roberta Bondar as their astronaut to study. They showed their projects to Bondar and she posed for pictures and autographed their projects.
