On Thursday 26th January, a team of KS3 and KS4 pupils from the Academy competed in the regional heat for the Royal Society of Chemistry ‘Top of the Bench’ competition. This competition is designed to encourage and reward high achievement and give pupils an insight as to what Chemistry is like in a university environment. The heat took place in the David Keir Building, Queen’s University of Belfast.
The team consisted of Ella Harvey and Michael Harvey from Form III, Ellen Campbell from Form IV and Lucy O’Kane from Form V. The team finished strongly as runners-up overall out of the fifteen teams from across the Province who took part. The experience gained was invaluable and we congratulate them on their excellent performance.
