NIWA Wellington Science and Technology Fair

On Thursday 28th August 25 boys from Year 7 and 8 went into Victoria University to have their entries judged in the regional science fair.
Throughout the morning various judges wandered around and discussed different aspects of the boys investigations.
It was a valuable experience for all of the boys and they represented Wellesley and themselves well.

A huge thank you to Mr Harris for stepping in and helping out on the morning and taking the above photos for me.  Thank you also to Mr McKenna who also stayed on at the University and all of the other parents who helped make my hectic morning so much easier!

The following day the results were announced on the Science Fair website.
Congratulations to the following boys;
