Our Science courses aim to tap into student curiosity about their world. As a result there is a strong emphasis on practical classes in addition to learning how to communicate scientific information.
All students undertake Science in years 7-10 as part of their studies.
In Year 7 and 8 students will study a core curriculum designed to expose them to Physics, Biology, Environmental Science, and Chemistry. With a strong focus on practical and laboratory work, students will focus on developing their knowledge of the scientific method at this time.
In Year 9 all students do one semester of General science covering each of the main branches of science and one semester where they can elect a science from their preferred area.
In Year 10 students choose from General Science and Advanced General Science for their core science and again can choose an elective from their preferred area. Students who love science may also choose to complete more than one elective each year.
High achieving Year 10 students may also apply to do an Early Start VCE science subject.
