Salter's Festival of Chemistry

S1 pupils Rebecca Michael, Caitlin Strain, Holly McAllister & Jodie McCulloch won Salter's Festival of Chemistry at Glasgow University on Wednesday 23rd May. The girls had to take part in a forensic chemistry practical competition, competing against 16 schools to discover who had murdered the head teacher!

They were scored on teamwork, practical skills and tidiness, conclusion to their results and no help from their teacher. They completed the task within the time limit and the judges were impressed with their ability to understand the task, as well as their confidence in carrying out the required practical work.

The girls celebrate their success
