Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

BEL­MONT City Col­lege came home with an 11th place af­ter com­pet­ing in the Royal Aus­tralian Chem­i­cal In­sti­tute Titra­tion Stakes 2015.

Stu­dents trained with teach­ers out­side school time to learn prac­ti­cal and the­o­ret­i­cal as­pects of chem­istry.

The team will com­pete in the na­tional fi­nal.

Team cap­tain Joyce Donoso was ner­vous at the start.

“But all our train­ing paid off when we re­alised we were fin­ish­ing ahead of time...it was great to com­pete against other high-pro­file schools,” she said.

Prin­ci­pal Dar­rel Le Mercier said it was a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment all-round.
