We would like to congratulate all our students who entered their STEAM Innovations/Science Fair projects into the NIWA competition held at Mission Heights Junior College on Monday.

The standard was once again really high and the judges were most impressed. This year’s Fair has unfortunately been a little different to previous years, as the students never got an opportunity to share their work with the scientists who were judging their projects. Despite this, Somerville did extremely well.

Congratulations to all the students who won awards this year. Your hard work and dedication has really paid off and we are all very proud of you. Thanks to the teachers and parents who helped along the way.
