    Please see this link, http://www.basef.ca/2017StudentAwardsIndex

    There are at least 3 more Oakville students that have won the Canada Wide Science trip. Not sure if I saw them all but they are:
    Lombo Eduard (St. Andrews)
    McCourt Connor (Oakville Christian Schooll)
    Waldie Benjamin (Kings Christian Collegiate)

    Also Oakville Christian School won top Elementary school
    and Kings Christian School top high school

    These are all Oakville schools and students, just not part of the Halton District school board.
