Exhibit's not collected

Unfortunately any remaining exhibits that were at the University as of Monday night, have had to be disposed of. We do not have any storage facilities, and are unable to maintain the exhibits, for them to be collected later.

If you are disapointed by this, so are we. But unfortunately I/we do not have the ability to store these domestrically.

The Organizing Committee

Pick up your Exhibits on Saturday 30th August

Please make arrangements with School Buddies, Parents, yourself, your shadow, anybody to pick up your exhibit between 12:00 noon and 3:00pm on Saturday 30th August. The Committee has absolutely no storage space what so ever, and unfortunately when exhibits are not collected, we have to dump the results of worthwhile and exceptional work, simply as we do not have facilities to store, and distribute exhibits that are not collected.
