While many Year 12 students will head to the beach in January, three of our Year 12 Science students will be heading to university. Ella Bowerman, Issy Lawrence and Mikayla Robson have been selected by Rotary, from amongst top academic students from the upper North Island, to attend the prestigious Rotary Science Forum at Auckland University.
The scholarship entitles the girls to spend two weeks studying at Auckland University where they will connect with over 160 others from around New Zealand. The girls will attend lectures, go on field trips to science and technology-related organisations and learn from industry experts.
“We are so proud that three of our students have been selected for this opportunity,” says Long Bay College Head of Science, Mrs Samantha Lewis. “It is an amazing start for a career in the science field. We are very excited about supporting them next year to achieve their goals and to see the difference they will make to the world in the future.”
After completing Year 13, Ella is planning to study Psychology and Chemistry, Issy is interested in Forensic Science and Mikayla hopes to complete a double degree in Biology and Communications.
