Palmerston North Boys’ High School has fourteen specialised science laboratories dedicated to the Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Electronics and Horticulture Departments.
Our school prides itself on being well-resourced in the Sciences so that our young men can not only have expert teachers in front of them, but they also get to have many kinaesthetic experiences doing practicals to help with their learning.
The laboratories are all wet areas equipped with gas on tap. The Chemistry laboratories have fumehoods for those experiments that need effective venting. Having two Science technicians available to staff and therefore, the students, has meant that experiments pertaining to the curriculum are organised and administered within a short turn around time.
The Science laboratories have a dual purpose – they are classrooms as well as laboratories. This means that our young men do not have to travel far to carry out specific experiments and get information directly from their teacher. Fitted with whiteboards and on-screen projectors, the students get a taste of true differentiated learning at Palmerston North Boys’ High School.
