Well today has been a very busy science day. Our displays have been set up in the hall and will be open to public viewing once the judging is complete. There has been a lot of work put into our science fair, both at home and at school. Thank you to all of our families for supporting our students with their learning. Kim Basse the principal of Ruapehu College, came over this morning to help us with judging our science fair. She was very impressed with the calibre of our displays and experiments and wanted me to pass on a few words.
Mrs Basse: I can see that a lot of work has gone into these displays. It is great to see that students had help from parents, especially to purchase materials. It is good to see what the students were interested in and how they were researching. It is obvious that some Waiouru School students are budding scientists, which is fantastic as science is such an important part of school and learning.
