Year 11 Biology Communicators
Across the Australian International School Malaysia we are dedicated to thinking critically when unpacking the complex interrelationships between nature and humanity. Our year 11 Biology students, led by Ms Joanne Davies, are currently using their keen communication skills to explain the structure and function of multicellular organisms by evaluating how coordinated activities in cells, tissues and organs contribute to a variety of heredited diseases. The passion on display during these fully engaging research presentations is marked by a rich and deep knowledge, while paying particular conscious respect for patient care, wellbeing and the Science behind these incredibly debilitating inherited diseases, which in many cases are fatal. Also on display is our students' authentic attention to detail, digging deep into the ethics and mortality of how communities and society are affected by such disease, while complementing this by exploring the evolving modern gene therapy discoveries which reach far and wide to solve some of our global issues. The integrity in which our senior students analyse these scenarios is a tribute to the balanced, holistic and targeted visible learning happening all over AISM, in our Junior and Middle school classes that inspire them to better themselves and the lives of those around them.
