Congratulations to Rylee Barrett (Y10) on taking SECOND PLACE in the Years 9 & 10 Environmental Science / Planet Earth & Beyond category for her project 'What the Shell'.

The project examined how water at different pH levels affects shells and ultimately shellfish. Rylee has worked diligently on this project since the end of last year, putting in a lot of time and effort during the school holidays.

Well done Rylee, on your outstanding achievement. Your curiosity, and commitment have certainly paid off!
