Rotary National Science Forum Success

Well done Namish Chand and Andre Yalda who have been selected to attend the two-week long Rotary National Science forum in January 2017.

This programme is for outstanding all round Science, Maths and Technology students in Year 12 who will be returning to school in Year 13 and are planning to study the Sciences or Technology at tertiary level.

This residential programme is conducted by Rotary and the Tertiary Institutions of Auckland. By the end of the forum, students should have a better understanding of the tertiary courses they wish to follow and a fuller appreciation of the place of science and technology in the wider community. It also provides an opportunity for high-achieving students to spend time with similar-minded people and the experiences gained invariably result in overall personal growth and a renewed motivation to succeed

Andre will attend the New Zealand Forum in Auckland and Namisha is one of just six students countrywide, chosen to represent New Zealand at the Australian National Science Forum. He will fly to Canberra as our ambassador.

We are proud of their success in selection and look forward to hearing their reports next year. I know both of them will make full use of this promising opportunity.

Mrs F Colyer
