LABASA Sangam College and Labasa College stamped their marks in the National Titration competition that was organised by USP over the weekend.
Labasa College came out third in the National Chemistry battle while Labasa Sangam College finished third in the National Chemistry competition and won the National Form Seven titration competition. Speaking at the competition awards chief guest of the North competitions and divisional education officer North Satya Shandil thanked the faculty of Science at USP for considering such a competition for students in Labasa.
"Titration is something that is applied every now and then in the real world and it is good to know that we have interest from our students in the North," Mr Shandil said.
"Fiji currently lacks a chemical scientist and who knows we may develop some locally right here under our noses without our knowledge.
"To the students that took part in this year's annual competition it is our hope that you will take your interests to another level."
Mr Shandil called on USP to decentralise the competitions down to secondary schools in rural areas too.
"Let's involve Form Six and Form Seven students in other rural schools too because I believe that these are the forms which are the springboard to tertiary education."
Proud Labasa Sangam College student and National Form Seven Titration competition winner Shivnesh Chand said he was proud of his achievement.
