SUMMARY OF RESULTS OF 2014 OLYMPIADS

Olympiad Results and Post Office strike

Submitted by robin on Mon, 09/15/2014 - 12:19pm

Teachers and Principals: Strike by post office

Please note that the recent post office strike caused huge problems for the National Science Olympiad. Therefore:

1. There was a delay in sending out your papers by registered mail. Consequently most of our mail was sent out by Courier and some by email. We trust that all of the schools registered have written the examinations. There were still about 115 packages that were sent via registered mail.

2. We expected you to return your answers by registered mail to us. However, at this stage we still have not reveived any registered mail from the post office. Apparently, though the strike is/was over from 9 September, they have a backlog which will take time to sort out. We are not sure how long.

3. If we do not receive the answers back timeously, there may be a delay in the processing and return of the results. If this occurs, we are not sure if it would be possible to have an awards function this year. A decision on this willl be taken in October and we will let the awardees know.

4. Please use your tracking number to let us know where your post is. Call and check. Also send us an email with your tracking number (s).

5. We will stay positive and hope that we can expedite marking so that we could remain on track for the succesful completion of our Olympiads.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. We trust that you understand that we did our best under the circumstances. It is disappointing to us and we do hope that you will not let this affect your continued aprticipation in the Olympiads.

We plan to use the courier service next year to send papers to centres for collection by you. Centres would be set up in Cape Town, East London, Port Elizabeth, Johannesburg and Pretoria. There are centres in KwaZulu-Natal and we would continue to use these.

Our thanks to all the Administration Staff, Teachers of Science, Heads of Departments, Deputy Principals and Principals for their admnistartive work to ensure the success of the Olympiads.
