Students from Years 7-10 gather once a week to explore the world of surgery. Led by Dorottya Papp [11N] and Cyrus Ng [11F], the students have been dissecting hearts and eyes, with more to come. Each dissection comes with a challenge: performing a ‘surgery’ on the organ in the form of an insertion or transplant.
Outside of dissections, the students also develop hands-on and behind the scenes skills. They have learnt the basics of suturing techniques, how to wash hands like a surgeon and more.
Through these ventures into the daily lives of surgeons, students get to indulge in their curiosities and fast-track learning about their interests. Providing engaging practicals has allowed students to practise and perform difficult science at a digestible and interesting pace.
