This year our College will be participating in two external Science competitions: the Chemistry Quiz, an initiative of The Royal Australian Chemical Institute; and a Science competition which is part of the University of New South Wales International Competitions and Assessment for Schools (ICAS) program. Both of these competitions are an opportunity for our students to evaluate their scientific competencies relative to those of students from many other schools. Each student will receive a Certificate of Participation or a Certificate of Merit.All students studying Chemistry in Years 11 and 12 will be participating in the Chemistry Quiz, as well as those in the Challenge classes. Students in the Challenge classes will also be taking part in the Science competitions. There are however many students in mainstream classes who are exceptionally talented in Science. The Science Faculty would like to extend an invitation to all Science students who wish to participate.Participation in the Chemistry Quiz costs just $5.00 and the Science Quiz is $7.00. This covers the cost of the paper, marking and issuing of certificates.Interested students should give their name to Ms Mantaj by the end of week 2 of Term 2.
