TWO gleaming, modern science laboratories at Bomaderry High School were officially opened last week, adding a boost of inspiration to a new generation of students.
The two new labs, joined by a new preparation room, feature the latest equipment and a new layout that offers students a better configuration of theory and practical spaces.
Kiama MP Gareth Ward, a Bomaderry High School old boy, was proud to be involved in the upgrade.
“It means Bomaderry High can continue to give a quality education to these students like me when I was here.”
The school’s head science teacher Cathy Russell was excited with the new facilities.
“We’ve got a few finishing touches still to come like smart boards and short-throw projectors but the rooms are fantastic,” she said.
Year 11 physics and chemistry student Pat Jones from Jaspers Brush is one of the school’s high achieving students.
He is the third year 11 student in three years to be accepted into the National Youth Science Forum.
He was selected from 148 students around NSW to attend the forum in January 2014.
This follows fellow student Merryn Fraser’s return from South Africa where she attended the International Youth Science Forum.
