Extracting DNA

As part of the Year 10 science unit on genetics students have been learning about DNA and its structure. In their first science lesson back on campus, students had an opportunity to extract DNA from multiple different types of fruit and compare them. 

 

Our amazing Lab technician Sean also assisted on the day. It was a fun way to start back at school.

Reminder: Purchase your Child’s Device

Before the new academic year commences, it is important to purchase your child’s device using the Learning with Technologies BYOD portal. 

 

This is a convenient way for you to select from a range of pre-approved device types and have it shipped directly to you. You may choose to purchase the device outright or utilise finance options. 

 

We recommend placing your order by the end of Week 5, Term 4 in readiness for the new academic year.

 

You can also access this purchasing portal from the homepage of the website, as shown below:
