Academic Science

 

 

 

 

 

 

In teaching Science we seek to enable all students to ask and answer questions about the beautiful and wonderful world in which they live. Students will discover and use laws of parts of the ordered reality to see how discoveries have been used to develop effective ways of stewarding resources. Unit plans are carefully constructed so as to develop skills that include analysis, deduction, creativity and observation.  Scientists are entrusted with great responsibility and the students are encouraged to look at how to use Science and its applications responsibly, and recognise societal and ethical implications for the use of science in responsible stewardship.

Activities

Environment Day

Every year students in Years 7 and 8 participate in Environment Day. During this day students take part in a range of outdoor activities helping community organisations across the region. This is an extremely valuable learning experience for the students in which they not only learn about the environment around them but they also learn how to look after it.
