Administrative / Biographical History

The School Natural Science Society was originally founded as the School Nature Study Union in 1903 by Miss K.M. Hall and the Rev. Claude Hinscliff to encourage the study of biology and nature in schools. Its name and constitution were amended during the early 1960s. Its executive committee meets several times every year. The Society publishes the journal entitled Natural Science in Schools.
