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.

We run many programs to support the curriculum including: 

  • Year 8 participate in a collaborative NBSC college-based project called Science Technowhich allows students to explore developing technologies and the science which drives them 
  • Years 7 to 10 sit for the NSW ICAS Science Competition 
  • Years 11 and 12 have the opportunity to sit the Australian National Chemistry Quiz and Olympiads in a discipline of their choice
