Keeping Covid-19 at bay
With that in mind, Vice-Principal and one-time Science teacher Mr Harman Johll rallied his team to create ‘school-made’ hand sanitisers for each class. The team used materials that were already there in school – in the labs and left over from other projects. The lesson for students: Be resourceful, imaginative and, most important, apply what you’ve learnt in Science class! Students were also taught that hand sanitisers are a secondary measure – hand-washing with soap is still the most effective way to protect ourselves.

Total Defence Day 2020
Our students learnt how the lessons of total defence are even more important today amid the Covid-19 outbreak. They learnt about the manipulative nature of falsehoods and false rumours (Sixth Pillar of Total Defence : Digital Defence) and how verifying sources of information is both an individual and collective responsibility.

Annular Eclipse Observation at NJC
We have captured an animation of the hydrogen-alpha Sun during the different phases of the annular eclipse ending with a ring of fire which you could viewed at https://tinyurl.com/NJC-eclipse-animation. You can see a zoom-in image of the second sunspot (the one at 8 o’clock position) taken by one of our high-resolution solar telescopes at https://tinyurl.com/NJC-eclipse-sunspot
We deployed 2 types of telescopes, namely white-light solar film telescope and hydrogen-alpha solar telescope for the eclipse observation. A white-light solar telescope enables us to see the bright white light from the Sun. It presents the Sun as an orange blank solar disk. An orange image is produced by such a telescope because observers prefer an orange Sun over a white one. A Hydrogen-alpha telescope, on the other hand passes only a narrow band of red-orange light emitted by glowing hydrogen atoms while blocking the overwhelming white light from the Sun. It enables us to see dynamic and explosive events like prominences, filaments and solar flares in the Sun’s chromosphere.
The images in the animation were taken by a hydrogen-alpha telescope at the NJC High-resolution Solar Research Observatory (HISRO). You can see two big sunspots (white regions) on the Sun. One sunspot was near the 2 o’clock and the other at the 8 o’clock position. Solar flares can be seen from such sunspots. Unfortunately, or fortunately there were no flares on the day of the eclipse.
Students interested in astronomy are welcomed to join us for future events.

Happy New Year
We wish all NJCians a joyful and peaceful 2020.

Annular Solar Eclipse 2019
We will be hosting a viewing party on 26 Dec at NJC for students, teachers and members of public. Telescopes and binoculars with filters for enthusiasts to witness the rare sighting will be placed at strategic locations for the viewing. We expect more than 600 enthusiasts to be present.
