Stu­dent stars in sci­ence test

South Waikato News - - RURAL DELIVERY -

Toko­roa North School stu­dent Kieran De­lany achieved a high dis­tinc­tion for the Univer­sity of New South Wales sci­ence test.

The nine year old’s achieve­ment puts him in the top one per cent of year 5 stu­dents in New Zealand.

‘‘It is re­ally out­stand­ing. He is an ex­cel­lent stu­dent,’’ prin­ci­pal Stephen Blair said.

Keiran said the test com­prised 40 mul­ti­choice ques­tions.

‘‘I love sci­ence. I wish that I can do this when I get older,’’ he said. He loves sci­ence so much he is re­search­ing Ernest Ruther­ford. ‘‘I found it (the test) quite easy but it started to get harder and I had to use ev­ery part of my brain to do it.’’
