The Year 11 Chemistry students had a glorious day trip in fantastic weather visiting sites along our Brisbane River. Starting from Colleges Crossing at Mt Crosby, students had to collect water and test for various parameters. After visiting sites at Moggill and the Story Bridge, we ended at Hamilton. By this time, students were a well-rehearsed team and proficient in the testing procedures. At school further testing continued and students will now use their results in a report that evaluates the Health of the Brisbane River.

Year 9 students are continuing with their exploration of light with dissections of eyes, recognising that an understanding of an eye requires an understanding of lenses and reflection and refraction. Dissections are always an important part of Science as students appreciate the complexity of life and apply an understanding of how some biological systems interact with and model physical phenomena.
Year 12 students are hard at work investigating factors that affect the stability of different compounds as part of their Redox Chemistry unit. Students are using titration to quantitatively measure concentrations. Vitamin C, a necessary vitamin as it is a potent anti-oxidant, and bleach as its active ingredient is a powerful oxidising agent that kills organisms and decolourises stains, are popular in this study. Students are rapidly increasing their proficiency and skills with this method.
