Well done to the South Hunsley Chemistry team in their efforts at the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Top of the Bench competition. The team consisted of 2 year 9 students, Sarrah and Will, 1 year 10 student, Abbie and 1 year 11 student, Eleanor.
In the first week, students had to complete a test for their year group and then a series of table top challenges as a team, in the second week students were tested on their practical skills and had to work through a problem systematically and accurately.
The South Hunsley team just missed out on a top three position for the Hull and East Yorkshire RSC region which was a very challenging heat to be in. Our students performed outstandingly and each member of the team were a credit to the school. The teams strengths were in the academic test where all students were in the top three for their year group and our Year 9 students first! The event took place at the University of Hull and all team members should be incredibly proud of their accomplishments in a very challenging competition.
