Throughout the evening, our students performed their procedures calmly and confidently, supporting one another and having a great team spirit.
A group of our high-achieving Chemistry students were selected to participate in the State-wide Titration competition at the end of Term 2. This is a highly competitive analytical competition in which students are required to analyse the acid quantity of a sample to the accuracy of 6 decimal places (0.000001). This year, we were faced with the challenge of running out of time for practice. Despite this, our students embraced the difficulty with determination and perseverance. They sacrificed their lunchtimes and after school to practise and refine their skills. It has been a wonderful time hanging out together.
On the day of the competition, we prayed together as a group and committed this competition into God’s hands. Throughout the evening, our students performed their procedures calmly and confidently, supporting one another and having a great team spirit. When the results were announced, we were delighted to know that all our students performed excellently with their percentage error less than 5% from the true results. In particular, Victor Komaiya scored 0.0000001 away from the actual value, receiving a High Distinction Award. Natalia Kappert and Georgia Strickling similarly also finished with amazingly close results of a 0.000008 difference from the true value, receiving a Distinction Award respectively.
Our two Rehoboth teams ranked 12th and 26th respectively out of the 68 teams that participated.
Congratulations to our Year 12 team who qualified for the National Titration Finals which will take place on Tuesday 23 August UWA. Let’s keep them in our prayers!
