Welcome to our school’s Science Department, where curiosity meets discovery and learning is an adventure. Through engaging curriculum and hands-on activities, our Science Team nurtures critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and scientific inquiry among our students. Our dedicated team of educators utilises the Western Australian Science Curriculum to ensure that each student receives an enriching science education.

From observing the life cycle of plants to exploring the properties of matter (small and large), our curriculum is designed to cultivate a deep understanding of core scientific principles. Our educators guide students through the process of asking questions, making predictions, and drawing conclusions, fostering problem-solving and communication skills along the way. With a focus on real-world applications and practical skills, we prepare our students to become tomorrow’s scientists, engineers, and innovators.

Join us on a journey of discovery, where every question sparks new possibilities, and every experiment ignites a passion for learning. Welcome to the world of Science at Hedland Senior High School.

Science Courses Offered

In lower school science, we prioritise personalized learning through differentiation tailored to individual needs. Our approach ensures every student receives the support they require to thrive, and by embracing diverse learning styles and abilities, we are building a dynamic environment where each child can excel and explore the wonders of science.

In senior school, we strive to accommodate students with varying levels of interest and proficiency in science by offering a diverse range of courses. Through our broad selection, including both ATAR and General courses, we ensure that every student has the opportunity to engage deeply with scientific concepts aligned with their interests and goals. Whether students aim for advanced study or seek a broader understanding of science, our curriculum empowers them to explore, question, and excel in their scientific endeavours.
