Level 2 Chemistry

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr T. Keough

If you wish to understand the fragrance of a rose or the tenacity of the oak; if you are not satisfied until you know the secret paths by which sunshine and the air achieve these wonders; if you wish to see the pattern which underlies a large field of human experience and human measurement, then take up chemistry, for the past and present lead into a future where chemistry has a special place. Most of the evils which disfigure this present world cannot be put to right by chemistry alone; but it is equally sure that they cannot be put right without it.
