Outstanding Science Achievement

By TBHS | Posted: Tuesday August 13, 2019

We are extremely proud of Year 13 student and Deputy Head Boy, Bailey Lissington who landed a prestigious international science award in Sydney.

Presented by the Governor of New South Wales and Chancellor of Sydney University, the Harry Messel International Science Award for Scientific Leadership  was given to Bailey in recognition  of both his high academic achievement in science and his contribution to the school community through leadership and mentoring of students.

Bailey outclassed139 of the best young scientists in the world to win the award.  Six New Zealanders and 140  in total from different countries such as UK, USA, Thailand, Japan, China and other nations, particpated in the prestigious event that plays host to top science students from Australia and overseas for a two-week residential program of talks by world-renowned scientists, laboratory tours, hands-on activities and social events.

We look forward to following Bailey's exploits in the world of science when he leaves us at the end of the year when he moves on to tertiary education that will further support and challenge him in this field.
