The students found this tough competition even more challenging as Naomi attended despite fighting an illness. By lunchtime all of the students had worked well as a team to determine the vitamin C content of various foods by titration, and finished ahead of other schools despite a late start.
However, at this stage Naomi was too unwell to continue and the team battled on in the final quiz as a group of three. In the final score, the team finished in the top third of schools from throughout the South West region, and both Mr Williamson and Miss Penzer were impressed with the mature and supportive manner that all of the students had throughout the competition.
