Important updates for SA of Science Fair

Important updates for SA of Science Fair

Dear Students and Parents,

 

Please note that with the consideration of the level of preparation, the exhibition of Science Fair for grade 9 has been shifted to January 21, 2019.

Although, students are requested to work on their Science Fair Projects during this weekend and collect data as you will be working on the evaluation of the data on 9th January(day 2) in the respective Science Slots as a part of your assessment.

On 11th January during the HRM slot, your project will be assessed by the respective teacher-in-charge, beyond which you will be marked a level 0 for work not done.
