TV host for workshop on weather

LET'S hope the weather stays sunny next week, as Austar's Weather Channel presenter Lee Brooks will be coming to Rockhampton.

Part of the Austar for Schools Weather Month, Lee will host Weather workshops on Thursday for lucky students at Crescent Lagoon Primary School.

Lee will discuss the part that weather plays in natural disasters and help students try their hand at presenting the weather and fun weather experiments.

Depending on the weather, a skydiver will make the grand finale by jumping out of a plane and landing on the school oval with a large banner, for The Weather Channel.

Crescent Lagoon Primary School will receive $2000 from Austar for Schools for student resources.
