RE: CSSP BIO-BATTLE COMPETITION 2016
This year once again The Chemical Society of the South Pacific (CSSP) will be organizing the Bio-Battle Competition for budding biological science practitioners.
On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my pleasure to write to you and invite your school to participate in the CSSP Bio-Battle Competition 2016. The chief purpose of the Bio-Battle Competition 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.
This year the competition for the different zones will be held on Saturday, 18th June, 2016 at 1pm and the venues are as follows:
- Central/Southern Zone: Rooms H104A and H104B, FALE Building, USP, Laucala Campus, Suva.
- Western Zone: Nadi Muslim College (Nadi) and Xavier College (Ba)
- Northern Zone: Labasa Sangam SKM College (Labasa)
This year the competition has NO ENTRY FEE unlike previous years and hence we would like to see more schools taking part in this competition. The questions for the competition will be in accordance with the Ministry of Education’s syllabi (Years 11– 13). Since this is a competition, we expect students to know a bit more than what is required in their syllabi.
Entry will be given to 1 team/school; where each team should include three students. It is also important to note that students, who participate in the CSSP Chem-Knowledge Battle Competition, will be restricted from participating in this competition.
The Registration Form is enclosed. A completed Registration Form must be submitted by Friday, 3rd June, 2016 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 between school teachers and the CSSP members, we humbly request the teachers of the participating schools to accompany their teams to the event and we welcome their assistance in making this event a success. Looking forward to your school’s participation.
Mr. Daniel Deepak Kumar
