The aim of our Life Sciences Department is to develop an interest and passion for the study of organisms and their organization, life processes and relationships to each other and their environment. This discipline is dynamic, interesting and stimulating.
The curriculum and the style of teaching have been adapted to cope with the increasing knowledge and advances in technology such as Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology. It is essential that the students be educated enough to consider the implication of these biotechnological advances. The content of Life Sciences is designed to make the students aware of how the body works and to ensure that an environmental awareness is developed to understand the important inter-relationships between Life Sciences and the immediate environment.
At St Mary’s school, we are fortunate to have state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment which enables us to develop the skills, techniques and methods to prepare our students for the demands of tertiary education.Being part of this discipline will offer you a wide range of skills that can be employed in a wide range of careers.
