Exclusive reactions from our students after a practical experiment with Thermite


During the Chemistry class today, our year 10 students had fun learning the reaction between Aluminium and Iron Oxide through a practical experiment.

Nathan Mealor, the Director of Learning and Improvement, also the Chemistry Teacher, said:

“We did today an experiment to show the displacement reaction between Aluminium and Iron Oxide. I think practicals help engage students to help cement complex ideas.”

Following the experiment, a year 10 student said:

“It was a very exciting experience. It helped me understand reactions better.”
