Science

A study of science is mandatory for all students from Kindergarten to Year 10.

In science, students explore the natural and made worlds. They learn how to apply scientific skills, knowledge and understanding across a broad range of contexts.

Science provides a way of inquiring about the world around us. It explores evidence and investigates ways to discover, develop and produce solutions to real-world problems. The inquiry and skill-based nature of science opens doors to ideas and discoveries.

In Years 11 and 12, students can choose from different science disciplines, including:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Earth and Environmental Science
  • Investigating Science
  • Physics.

Science provides a Learning Framework through which students learn about science, it's history, nature and practice, applications, implications for society and environment, current issues, research and development.

Students also learn about theories, laws and structures related to the physical world, matter, the living world and Earth and space. Interactions within the physical world are also studied.

Students develop skills in working scientifically and will develop positive values and attitudes.

In Stage 6 the following courses are offered (in alphabetical order): Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Environmental Science, Martine Studies, Physics and Senior Science.
