Science Fair Results



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:

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.
