Those giving Oral Presentations will take place in a side room and you can collect your judges form etc from the front desk.



The Science & Technology Fair Committee will provide security but can take no responsibility for entries while they are on exhibition. Valuable items should be secured, or, if necessary, removed after judging.

  • Yr 7 & 8 exhibitors will be judged from 11am to 1:30pm
  • Yr 3-6 exhibitors will be judged from 11:30am to 1:30pm

You are expected to be present during judging when you will be asked for your judging form and to explain your exhibit. Make sure you have your log book.

As soon as your exhibit has been judged you are asked to make your way back to school.
