St George’s Prep School dominated the recent Regional Science Fair for primary and secondary schools held in Windhoek last week. Taking nine gold and one silver medal, St George’s performance reflects the importance paid to science education. St George’s is held in high regard by both parents and educators and is one of the leading private schools in Windhoek.
Dawie Leibbrand, Head of the Prep School said: “We are extremely proud of our learners and know that their hard work and dedication has paid off. Five of our learners have also been selected to represent our school at the national competition later this year. This is another great achievement as only ten projects from the Khomas Region were selected.”
The judges commented on the high quality of projects delivered by St George’s. Three entries were category winners and these were: Monique Pedreiro, Gr. 6 with her project on “Do soft drinks affect our teeth?” in the Human Sciences Category; Willie Serfontein, Gr. 6 with his project on “The Servanet Project for Namibia?” in the Energy Category and Bradley Sisson, Gr. 5 with his project “Does Namibia get Acid Rain?” in the Water Category. Bradley’s project was also awarded “Best Primary School Project.”
St George’s expressed their sincere thanks to the teachers, Ms Fani Khaiseb, Ms Carike Mans, Ms Nancy Kangumine and Ms Bettie Maritz for their commitment to the Science Fair as well as the parents for supporting and encouraging their children.
