A group of our scientists have made it through to the next stage of the RSC Chemistry Mastermind Competition’s Essex heat.
This is brilliant news especially as it’s the first time the school has taken part.
Kairon Conception from 11 Bell, Shams Ullah from 10 Heath and William Mena and Selorm Amenu from 9 Gregory had to complete a gruelling test that was marked externally.
Mr Adenekan was thrilled when he heard St Bonaventure’s had been placed in the top 7 out of 41 schools that participated, most of them fee paying and grammar schools from across Essex.
The lads prepared by having additional booster classes and tests to decide who would go on to represent the school.
Mr Halliwell wishes them all the luck in the world at the semi finals next month.
