Science

In Science students investigate, understand and communicate in a broad range of topics that allows them to better understand the world around them. Science helps students to become critical thinkers by encouraging them to use evidence to evaluate what they see and what they hear.

The Science Department has fully implemented the Australia Curriculum for lower school and offer students the opportunity to study the full range of Science subjects available in upper school.

 

In lower school the curriculum is divided into four conceptual strands:

  • Biological Sciences
  • Physical Sciences
  • Chemical Sciences; and
  • Earth and Space Sciences

All four strands are covered in each of the lower school years giving students a broad range of topics to study whilst preparing them for the upper school Science units they choose to study. Students also practice Science investigating skills through these years, developing skills in collecting, analysing and communicating information from their environment.

 

In upper school students are given the opportunity to study the full range of WACE Sciences courses available, which include:

  • Human Biological Science
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
  • Earth & Environmental Science
  • Integrated Science; and
  • Psychology
