Re: CSSP NATIONAL CHEM KNOWLEDGE BATTLE 2014
Date & Venue for Finals: 4th October 2014, USP Campuses
The Chemical Society of the South Pacific has listed as part of its annual event, The National Chem Knowledge Battle, competition for our budding Chemists.
On behalf of the Chemical Society of the South Pacific it is my pleasure to write to you and invite your school to participate in the National Chem Knowledge Battle. The competition is aimed to enable students to test their knowledge, meet students of other schools and understand the role of chemistry in our daily living.
The competition for the different zones will be held on Saturday, 21st June, 2014 at 10.00 am and the venues are as follows:
Central/Southern Zone: H104A and H104B - USP
Western Zone: Nadi Muslim College and Xavier College (Ba)
Northern Zone: Labasa Sangam SKM college (Labasa)
The questions for the competition will be in accordance to the Ministry of education syllables (forms 5-7) and the team members can be from any level as it is an open category. Since this is a competition, we expect students to know a bit more than what is required in their syllables. This competition is for 1 ½ hours.
Please find attached the letter together with the registration form. Chem Battle Letter 2014
Entry will be given to 1 team/school. The competition has an entry fee of $2.00/participant and will be collected on the day of the competition. The format of the competition and the registration form is enclosed. Completed Registration Forms must reach the following address on or before Friday, June 7th 2014 by post, fax or email. For schools in the West, please indicate your preference venue.
Since CSSP is encouraging more student participation, students participating in the Chem Knowledge Battle should not be participants in the Titration Competition.
To promote a better relationship amongst the school teachers and CSSP members, we would like to request the teachers of the participating school to come on the day of the event and help in making the event a success. Looking forward to your school’s participation.
