RE: CSSP BIO-BATTLE 2014
Date & Venue for Finals: 4th October 2014, USP Campuses
This year the Chemical Society for the South Pacific (CSSP) will be developing the competition for the budding biological science practitioners (such as doctors, nurses, technicians, and researchers) which was introduced last year.
On behalf of the organizing committee, it is our pleasure to write to you and invite your school to participate in the CSSP BIO-Battle 2014. As the annual CSSP Chem-Knowledge Battle has been successful over the last couple of years, we at CSSP felt that it was time to expand the national schools competition to include the closely related scientific discipline of Biology. The chief purpose of the BIO-Battle is to provide secondary school students with an opportunity to test their knowledge and practical application of biology with other secondary school students in an exciting and competitive meet.
Please find attached the letter together with the registration form. Bio Knowledge Battle Letter 2014
This year we are expanding the competition to all the secondary schools in Fiji compared to last year where we had only schools in the Central division participating. The competition for the different zones will be held on Saturday, 21st June, 2014 at 1pm 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 competition has an entry fee of $2.00/participant and will be collected on the day of the competition.
The questions for the competition will be in accordance with the Ministry of Education’s syllabus (Forms 5–7). Since this is a competition, we expect students to know a bit more than what is required in their syllables.
Entry will be given to 1 team/school; where each team should include three students, one from each level (Forms 5-7). It is also important to note that students, who have participated in the CSSP Chem-Knowledge Battle this year, will be restricted to partake in this competition.
The format of the competition and the registration form is enclosed. A completed Registration Form must reach the following address on or before Friday, 7th of June 2014 by post, fax or email. For schools in the West, please indicate your preference venue.
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. Look forward to your school’s participation.
