Sep 17th, 2018

Two boys/mixed teams and one girls team had a fantastic day at the Dandenong Basketball Centre. All members of the squad should be proud of their efforts on the court and their behaviour off it. Many thanks to Dylan and Daniel from Year 9 who coached on the day. The best performed team was the Girls A who won two games and missed out on the final by a count back.

Year 12 Biology Gene Technology Access Centre excursion

Sep 14th, 2018

On Friday 14th September the Year 12 Biology students visited the Gene Technology Access Centre in Parkville to conduct an DNA manipulation experiment. The students were able to use the state of the art technology to produce specific proteins required for industry and research. They spliced and recombined DNA from a bacterium with DNA from different organisms and then reintroduced this 'recombinant' DNA back into the bacterium. The students were able to transform E.coli with the plasmid which was demonstrated by the glow of the Green Florescent Protein. This program gave the students an understanding of how a research lab works and enhanced their level of learning into Genetically Modified and Transgenic Organisms.
