Future Problem Solving
Hannah Williamson (Yr 8, Rm 18) who won the national Future Problem Solving Yr 7/8 Individual Division in Auckland recently! This is an amazing achievement and means that she now heads to the USA for the World Finals! Cobham was last represented at the World Finals in 2010 and so it is amazing to be back there again so soon! But wait, there’s more. Not only was it awesome to have Hannah win the event, Cobham also filled the other two remaining available spaces for this division from across NZ. So only three spaces across NZ and all were from Cobham Intermediate! Sarah Lawrence (Yr 7, Rm 12) placed second behind Hannah and Andrew Thiele (Yr 8, Rm 19) placed third. Congratulations to Sarah and Andrew too! We are trying to find out if a division at the national finals has ever been completely from one school. Many thanks to Sue Williams for her skilled work with these students! Great job everyone!
Christ’s College Year 7 Science Competition
Congratulations to Sarah Lawrence, Hamilton Martin, Nathan Penrose and Leah Albrow who were the 2013 winning team. This annual competition involves teams competing in three activities: Biology, setting up apparatus, collecting results and explaining as a group what was discovered. Chemistry, a simple practical investigation using common chemicals. Physics, performing a practical task to find an unknown quantity. Each activity was marked out of 20 and Cobham were awarded a perfect score for Biology. We are delighted with this result . They not only won a trophy but a digital microscope for our lab and each received a goodie bag for taking part. Annie Bowker Teacher in charge Science
