As part of the L4th Microbiology course, pupils are invited to take part in the annual Society of Microbiology competition. This year’s competition, sponsored by Yakult, was to produce a one-page, illustrated article for a healthy living magazine with the aim of improving understanding of the contribution of the activities of microbes to a healthy life style. Ten entries were put forward from the L4ths to the national competition and these girls will receive certificates of participation in their biology lessons. We are delighted to announce that Mya Gahle, in L4H, has received a Highly Commended certificate for the scientific merit in her article. This is an excellent achievement as 100s of entries were received from UK and Europe. Well done Mya!
