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.

During Years 7 - 10 students engage in a range of learning activities, including STEM projects and inquiry based learning. 

Stage 5 Elective - STEM 

Year 9 and 10 students have the opportunity to complete our Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. This course sees students develop their collaboration and problem solving skills through a multi-subject course. Students will complete activities such as bottle rockets, coding and drones.
