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
  • Investigating Science
  • Physics.

In Year 12, students who are studying at least one other science subject may also choose to study Science Extension.

In Science, we actively encourage involvement in extracurricular activities. These include a huge range of special events during Science Week (term 3); National Science Competition; National Chemistry Competition; Valid Year 8 Science; Titration Competition; invites to special events and a range of junior and senior field studies.
