Hosting of SJChO
Due to the extreme shortage of volunteers among the chemistry community here in Singapore, we can only allow schools to host round 1 if the school can host at least 300 participants (includng own students) in total. Please contact the secretary of our logistics committee if you are able to host at least 300 students. Otherwise, round 1 will be conducted centrally in NUS, NYP and NUSHS. We welcome teachers who would like to volunteer as invigilators.
SJChO committee is constantly looking for schools to host SJChO in round 2. Our partners will continue to be the main host for this round. In order to continue to allow schools with more than a certain limited number of participants to experience round 2 as well as to cater to more top performers in Round 1, we will need schools offering chemistry especially at JC level to continue supporting the event.
The organiser welcomes schools to host the practical round (Round 2). We hope to provide SJChO olympiad experience to as many students as possible. Therefore without support from schools to host the practical round, this will not be possible and the organisers will have to limit the number of students going to round 2. Please let us know if you can support. Host schools will be reimbursed for the cost of chemicals. The organiser will invite teachers from selected schools to invigilate in Round 2. It will be a great experience for teachers. Laboratory technician as well as invigilators will be given a token of appreciation. Information for hosts can be found here.
