Harte on Hearts

This Week Year 8 students have been dissecting hearts as part of the Science Interdisciplinary Unit ‘Heart and Lungs’.

The dissection helped students to identify cardiac muscles, ventricles, atriums, veins and arteries. Chemistry Teacher Lorraine Harte said, “Students were fascinated at the internal structure of this important organ, and how its action sustains life.”

Students have been forming connections between the circulatory system and fitness throughout the unit.
