In October, our Year 10 students studied the Blood Circulation System and had a number of exciting practicals.

The students were able to dissect pigs’ hearts and showed good skills here, so we may have some budding surgeons in the class; if not surgeons then, perhaps at least butchers! They managed to carefully cut open the hearts and correctly identify all the major parts and explain how the heart works to pump blood around the body, and then studied a slice of it under the microscope.
