Churston students have once again performed well in the Chemistry Olympiad competition. Six students from Year 13 tackled a number of difficult problems, including questions on nerve agent poisons and the neonicotinoid pesticides that are so harmful to bees. The standards are so high that certificates are only awarded to the top two thirds of entrants, yet all our students were successful. Bronze certificates were awarded to Ellen Harman and Kris Shears. Bethan Thomas, Felicity Dunn, Max Toy and Ben Lavers received the silver certificates presented to the top third of candidates. Special congratulations go to Max and Ben, who missed the gold award for the top 8% of students by only two marks.
