 Science Fair:

On Saturday, five children volunteered to take part in the Science fair at Wollaton Park. Arnav, Naveen, William, Matthew and Louis bought along their Science projects and demonstrated them to the public. The event was an out of school opportunity and it was quite time consuming on top of school normal school activities. I was very proud of the children who took their own initiative to design a project and explain their work in such a clear and confident manner.  The fair was valuable for developing social and interpersonal skills and it enabled the children to explain concepts and share their scientific knowledge to the public. Very well done.
