Each year, NYSF students and Rotary representatives are privileged to be invited to attend functions hosted by State Governors and the Administrator in the Northern Territory at Government House in most states.
The functions aim to celebrate the students’ selection to attend the NYSF and are seen as acknowledgement of their hard work and high level of achievement. Many students travel from regional areas to attend.
Each Governor and Administrator spends time with the students, giving a brief address that focuses on a particular area of interest or concern.
NYSF Director, Damien Pearce says that these receptions are a very unique opportunity available to NYSF students and recognizes the importance that science education plays in our community. “We sincerely thank all of the Governors and the NT Administrator and their staff members for their support this year.”
