El Shaddai Christian School Grade 10-12 students took part in the National Science Olympiad in early March 2016.
Travis Defty, Inae Kim, Christoff Rossouw and Christiaan Ackermann [Grade 12’s] and Sinead Stark [Grade 11] achieved impressive marks and have been invited to the Youth Science Focus Week in Pretoria during the July school holidays.
All their expenses are covered by the South African Agency for Science and the National Research Foundation.
The activities at the Science Focus Week will, among others, consist of thought-provoking lectures and excursions to various places including Denel Dynamics, Cullinan Diamond Mine and the Observatory in Johannesburg.
ESCS first entered this Olympiad ten years ago and has consistently increased the students success over the years.
