AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL CHEMISTRY QUIZ 2017

The aim of the RACI Australian National Chemistry Quiz is to prompt an interest and appreciation of the role of chemistry and chemists in our society, and engendered a better understanding of the nature and relevance of chemistry amongst students.

We have now received the results of the Australian National Chemistry Quiz that was conducted in August 2017 for some Year 10, Year 11 and Year 12 students. This year there were entries from Levels 7-12, representing 930 schools throughout Australia and many schools from 17 other countries including Germany and Vietnam.

Again students from Corpus Christi College have achieved very creditable results. The school average in both Year 10 and Year 11 was well above state average. The Year 12 average was also above the state and Australian average.

Students from this school were awarded 8 High Distinction Certificates (within the top 10% of the state), 17 Distinction Certificates (within the top 10% - 25% of the state), 5 Credit Certificates (within the top 25% - 40% of the state) and 23 Participation Certificates.

NATIONAL TITRATION CHAMPIONSHIPS – held at Murdoch University in late August

Congratulations to Olivia Mocerino, Phoebe Holmes and Hayley Zeller who represented Corpus Christi College at the RACI National Titration competition at Murdoch University in August.

Each member of the team was required to complete their own analysis of an unknown (over a two hour process) with the final results judged on their combined results. Overall our team achieved very well with each team member being awarded with a silver medal for their efforts.
