Grade 9s dissect sheep hearts

“I’m a heart breaker.” “This is so gross.” These were statements overheard whilst the Grade 9s were busy with a sheep heart dissection this week during Life Sciences. They are starting to learn about the cardiovascular system and thus were cutting it open to see four chambers and the valves between chambers and the major arteries that leave those chambers.

“The learning experience of touching and feeling the organ is so much more beneficial than looking at Google images.” – Mr Currie.
