Hidden Figures - Year 7 & 8 Extn Trip

On Wednesday the Year 7 & 8 Extension group went on a trip to watch 'Hidden Figures' at the Sylvia Park Movie theatre. We were lucky to have sponsors from Mr Vogt. His sisters loved the movie so much that they decided to do some fundraising so that a group of students from our school could go and watch the movie for free.

The movie itself was absolutely amazing. We learnt about how three African American women were able to overcome huge obstacles in their lives to work at and make a significant impact at NASA.

Review: HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.
