RE: CSSP BIO-BATTLE 2015
The Chemical Society of the South Pacific (CSSP) has scheduled as part of its annual event the “CSSP Bio-Battle” for aspiring biologists. This competition has been developed with much enthusiasm since its incorporation into the CSSP calendar in 2013.
In this respect and on behalf of the organizing committee, it is my pleasure to write and invite your school to participate in this year’s CSSP Bio-Battle. This competition provides secondary school students with an opportunity to evaluate their knowledge of biology and reflect on its practical applications, in an exciting and competitive meet.
The competition for the different zones will be held on Saturday 20th June, 2015 at 1.00 pm at the following venues:
Central/Southern Zone: H104A and H104B - USP, Suva
Western Zone: Nadi Muslim College, Nadi and Xavier College, Ba
Northern Zone: Labasa Sangam SKM College, Labasa
The competition has an entry fee of $2.00 per participant, which will be collected on the day of the competition. The questions will comply with the Form 5-7 syllabus set by the Ministry of Education; and because this is a competition, we expect participants to know somewhat more than their syllabus. Each participating school is simply allowed one team. Please note that this year; those students participating in the CSSP Chem Knowledge Battle will be prohibited from entering the CSSP Bio-Battle.
The Registration Form and other details are enclosed.Bio Battle Details and Registration Form 2015
Completed Registration Forms must be submitted by Friday, June 5th 2015 and preferably emailed to biobattle(at)thecssp.org. Submissions by fax or post will also be accepted. For schools in the Western Zone, please indicate your preferred venue.
To promote and encourage a stronger relationship with the school community and the CSSP members, we humbly request that the teachers accompany their participating teams and we welcome their assistance in making the event a success.
We now look forward to your school’s participation.
