Last Meeting
Visit by Upper Hutt Rotary Club
Dylan Davey, "our" co-sponsored student, spoke on the Students Science and Technology Forum he attended in Auckland.
We have often wondered what goes on at the courses or forums we sponsor and Dylan gave a particularly clear and helpful account of the one he attended for two weeks last January.  Dylan is now a year 13 student at St Patrick's College in Silverstream which he has attended since his family came to New Zealand from South Africa in 2015.
