Science is mandatory for all students from Year 7 to Year 10.

Science 7-10 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. Science emphasises the skills for working scientifically, as well as critical and creative thinking to address scientific issues.

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

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Earth and Environmental Science
  • Physics
  • Science Extension (Year 12 only)

We run many programs to support the curriculum including: 

  • Year 8 participate in a school-based project called Science Techno which allows students to explore technologies, the history behind them and the science which drives them. 
  • Years 7 to 10 sit for the Reach benchmarking assessment
  • Years 11 and 12 have the opportunity to sit the Australian National Chemistry Quiz and Olympiads in a discipline of their choice.
