San Sisto Triumphant Again at the Australian National Titration Competition

Recently, twelve Year 11 and 12 Chemistry students once again competed in the Australian National

Titration Competition organised by the Royal Australian Chemical Institute, at the University of Queensland St Lucia campus.

San Sisto has a rich tradition of excellence in titration, this year is no exception.  Although the final results are not published until later in the semester, we do know that San Sisto won a third place in the Regional competition.  This is no mean feat considering that there were as many as forty teams competing at the University on the day.

The competition involves a very accurate analysis of the concentrations of solutions of acid and base.  There is a high level of skill involved both at the practical and theoretical levels.  Students have had to be dedicated and put in many hours of training in the laboratory to obtain these skill levels.

Loren Toten, Lucy Quach and Brianna Barron were the team placing third.  Other teams competing included Sabrina Gregory, Brooke Jay, Charlie Enright, Yasmin Barraclough, Tayla Heath, Kiana Heath, Sophie Walden, Maria Leal and Talullah Vinney.

We would like to congratulate all team members as there were some very accurate individual results as well.
