Chemistry affects our lives from the moment we wake up. It is fundamental to making plastics, extracting metals, producing crops, extracting and refining fuels to power cars, making the paper we write on, the inks we write with, and so much more. We aim to make the study of chemistry enjoyable and relevant to everyday life.

Students develop a keen interest in studying chemical processes. They are encouraged to apply their knowledge to understand the effect on our planet, and to examine the important questions facing future generations.
