New members of the Lab_13 Gillespie Management Committee

We’d like to say a big well done to all the new members of the Management Committee!

Drum roll please…

Aisha…

Arjen…

Arthur…

Ruby…

Zarrin!!!!!

Each of these children, we noticed, were full of confidence, very friendly and they all loved science.  They had to write an application, then we shortlisted them and interviewed them to find out the answers to other questions that weren’t on the application form.

“I wanted to be in the Lab_13 committee because I thought that it would be fun and I would try new things. I wanted a photo with the question wall because I want to show everyone how many questions we ask as a school, and encourage them to ask more! ” – Zarrin

Carole invited the new committee members to Lab_13 for a team bonding exercise, making robot cards that will light up using the electric paint. Fun was had by all!
