One Southland primary school

Students from Limehills School
won a string of awards, including

people to excel in all areas of the
''It's about encouraging our
students to be curious and to
think outside the classroom,
taking a broad view of the world,''
he said. ''We're delighted with
More than 140 primary and junior
high schools from Stewart Island
to Queenstown competed in the
event, which fair chairwoman
Samantha York said was a
fantastic event for the province.
''We punch well above our weight
at a national level. It's really quite
amazing the talent that comes out
of Southland,'' Ms York said.
''I think we have a particular
interest in science and technology
in this region . . . and I think that
relates in part to our strong
farming and manufacturing back-
ground where developments in
technology are valued.''
Great support from loyal sponsors
had also made the fair successful,
she said, with businesses like
Fonterra, DairyNZ, the Com-
munity Trust of Southland, and
the Invercargill and Mataura
Licensing Trusts stepping up.
The major sponsor, New Zealand
Aluminium Smelters, was very
committed, she said, providing
$18,000 in sponsorship, along with
26 staff who supported the event.
