8TH GRADE SCIENCE FAIR The 8th graders presented their science fair projects using interactive tools which made it more inviting and educational for the audience. Among the projects presented were eolic energy, hydropower, magnetic levitation train, electromagnetics, plus other related issues. Hours upon hours spent by the students vigorously working on their projects was applauded by all those present. Their teachers also deserve recognition for guiding their students during the impressive process.

INTERNATIONAL BOOK DAY. 23 April is a symbolic date for world literature for on this date in 1616, Cervantes, Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega all died. It is also the date of birth or death of other prominent authors such as Maurice Druon, Haldor K.Laxness, Vladimir Nabokov, Josep Pla and Manuel Mejía Vallejo.

It was a natural choice for UNESCO's General Conference, held in Paris in 1995, to pay a world�wide tribute to books and authors on this date,

encouraging everyone, and in particular young people,

World Book and Copyright Day 23 April.
