A group of twenty Year 9 and 10 students attended the day long road show as part of the Gifted and Talented programme at the College.

Leading researchers and professors from the University of Otago posed questions and covered content on animal ethics and consumerism through lectures, live drama and student debates. Year 9 students Tasma Fulford and Erin Meek, presented the summary of one of their group debates to the whole auditorium in a court style role play. It was a thought provoking and interesting day.
