SAM3 is the third incarnation of the Schools Administrative Management system. It is a hybrid Ms-Access/MySQL database application used by School's administrative staff to assist in the management of their Programmes, Modules, Students and Staff.
The content for the site is cobbled together from pages from previous attempts to document the SAM project. Hence the disparate style of some documents.
This site has more than one purpose. The obvious, foremost, one being to disseminate information about SAM3. The second is for me to keep my web design skills up-to-date by learning some Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) techniques.

You may improve your browsing experience if you upgrade to a newer, more standards compliant browser.
For my convenience and for those of you who want to know more,
these are some of the CSS resources I've been investigating:
