This week, as part of their work in History and Science, 8D went to the Surgeon's Hall Museum. We started by looking at some historical surgical instruments and tried to work out what they were used for. Mr Ronan, ex-Cargilfield Head of Science and current Learning Coordinator at the museum, then showed us how an amputation would have been carried out. At the end of the afternoon, we spent a while exploring the museum; the pupils were particularly interested in the goreier parts of historical surgery and in the use of robotics in modern surgery.
Welcome to Cargilfield! We hope this short film gives you a glimpse of what life is like for the girls and boys at our school. We would love to welcome you in person to tour Cargilfield and explain more fully exactly what makes a Cargilfield education so special and so different. Please get in touch with Fiona Craig, our Registrar if you would like to find out more; her email address is [email protected] or you can telephone her on 0131 336 2207.
