Neha Singh and Emily Hawkes participated in the provincial round of the Natural Science Olympiad on 24 August. The girls were accompanied by Mr Prigge and a school driver to Crystal Park Primary, in Benoni.
This year the duration of the Olympiad paper was thirty minutes long and was completed on Google Forms. After the papers were submitted, participants, teachers, parents and officials assembled in the hall for a short prize giving. Each learner received a certificate for participation. Towards the end of the event the top three students from the Grade 6 and Grade 9 groups were announced. Emily Hawkes placed third overall among the Grade 9s. This is a marvelous achievement!
