Cryptic Crosswords

Cryptic crosswords work by playing with the multiple meanings of words and deftly recasting them to form cunning linguistic designs. Every nook and cranny of the English language and world culture is welcome fodder for a cryptic crossword's twists and turns, especially when connections arise in unexpected places (Presbyterians and Britney Spears are anagrams of each other!). The class aims to have you understand how cryptic crosswords are put together and why they’re so fun and addictive. And with that to get you going, you should be able to start solving clues on your own and look at words in a whole new light.

Stargazing and Photographing the Moon

On Monday evening we had a real treat, making the most of a clear night sky with an astronomy class! We set ourselves up in Royal Park and Andrew, who is currently completing a masters in astronomy at Swinburne University, was our guide.
