The Crazy Scientist

What fun we had when the Crazy Scientist visited our school and gave a hilarious science presentation in the hall! He needed lots of volunteers to help with his scientific experiments. No shortage of volunteers! We really enjoyed his talk and learned so much from his experiments.

Science Presentation by a Perfusionist

The Senior School had a most interesting science presentation by Damien Stafford, Senior Perfusionist in the  Mater Private Hospital.

A perfusionist   is a healthcare professional who uses the cardiopulmonary bypass machine (heart–lung machine) during cardiac surgery.

We saw photos of the life-changing machinery which keep people alive during heart and lung transplants. It was fascinating to hear about this amazing lifesaving work which is going on in our hospitals by our health professionals.  We learned how to become a perfusionist and also how to keep our hearts healthy by exercising regularly and avoiding unhealthy foods.
