Tuesday night was an exciting time, as we celebrated the success by Berkley students at the NIWA Waikato Science Fair. Students knew they were being recognised, but didn't know with what accolade. The science fair is divided into 19 classes, with Berkley entering 7 of these.
Prizegiving was an exciting time. These were our results:
Class 2: Year 8 Living World
Class 3: Year 7 Material World
1st: Isabelle (our only Y7 entry)
Class 4: Year 8 Material World
Class 5: Year 7-8 Physical World
Class 6: Year 7-8 Planet Earth and Beyond
Class 17: Year 7-8 Open Observational Drawings
New Zealand Institute of Agricultural Science (Waikato) Special Award for an excellent exhibit with an agricultural theme:
Babbage Consultants Trophy for the Best Physical World Exhibit:
As you can see, it was hugely successful, we were all very excited throughout the evening.
As the start of the year, I set the goal of Berkley winning the Top School, so was delighted when we were announced as the top school in the fair. Words really cannot express how proud I am of our hardworking students.
