Biology, the science that studies living organisms, helps us to explore,
understand and explain the origin, nature and prevalence of life in the universe.
The various biological topics here at St. Maryís, include study of environment , genes, use &
misuse of drugs, microbes & diseases, inside living cells & living organisms, cell division &
growth in organisms, energy flow & interdependence, biotechnology and animal behaviour.
Today scientists arenít just mapping genomes and manipulating genes, they are also building life from
a single cell. Studying Biology at school level, helps us to see how science works, teaches us to
analyse & evaluate evidence and also solve problems of scientific interest. Pursuing a career in
Biology can be immensely rewarding and exciting for students with varying aptitudes and from various backgrounds.
The subject Biology is an exceptional foundation for careers in Human Biology, Environmental
Biology, Cell and Molecular Biology and in applied areas such as Forestry, Wild Life,
Biotechnology and Forensic Science. It is also an excellent foundation for careers like
Medicine, Dentistry, Physiotherapy and various other opportunities in Medical, Engineering and Chemical fields.
The Biology department at St Maryís Catholic High School has highly qualified staff members
with extensive experience and strong research aptitude in the changing world of today. It is headed
by Mrs. Mary Augustine and comprises three other Teachers, Mrs. A.S. Honey, Mr. Mohammed Anwar & Mrs. Nilofer S.
