Our best wishes go to Wan Zhi Tay (13 NHD). She is about to represent New Zealand at the 11th International Geography Olympiad in Krakow, Poland from 12th - 18th August 2014. The best 16 - 19 year old geography students from all over the world participate in this annual competition.

Wan Zhi joins a team of four New Zealand students. Miss Baldwin will also be accompanying the group. The iGeo consists of three parts: a written test, a multimedia test and a substantial field work exercise. The competition also includes Scientific poster presentations by teams, cultural exchanges, and time for students to get to know their fellow students and explore the host city.

Good luck Wan Zhi!! We look forward to hearing updates as the competition progresses.
