We’re trying something new in Biology this year.
We’re calling our afterschool support sessions ‘Biscuits & Biology’. Bring your biology questions and problems along and you’ll get some help and a biccie.
So if you’ve like some help come along after school to Lab 10 (Mr Kelly’s room) and we’ll do our best.
We’re going to rotate it between Tuesdays and Wednesdays and we’re starting it off on Wednesday 17th September.
See you there?
Tomorrow is Jeans for Genes day in the school.

The National 4 Biologists are heading to the Seabird Centre on Wednesday 2nd October to learn about all about the local wildlife as part of Unit 3 of the course: Life on Earth.
The trip will involve learning at the centre itself and a trip out to Bass Rock. Forms and letters are going out from Mr Kelly and Miss Rankin this week…you need to get them back by Friday 27th September at the latest.
Welcome back to a new year at the Biology Department at PL!
In case you didn’t already know we have new teachers in the department this year. Ms Henderson joined us before the summer holidays and is teaching downstairs beside Mr Evan’s room. Ms Rankin has joined us since the summer and will be teaching upstairs in Ms Cunningham’s old room. Then there’s Ms Walker, Mrs Allan and me, Mr Kelly.
Part of the reason for creating this site is to provide you a direct link to our resources for our courses by using the menu above. We also plan to keep the blog up to date with the latest goings on in the department, so why not add this site to your favourites and follow us on twitter.
We hope you have a fantastic year with us and you achieve everything you hope to achieve…
We’re looking forward to welcoming back all our S4 and S5 students next week! Here’s the menu of what you’ll be doing when you’re with us over the next couple of weeks…
