During 2019, our whole-school science program continued to develop and provide meaningful practical activities for students.
Our science program has a focus on hands-on learning in all Science Understandings streams of Earth & Space, Biological, Physical and Chemical Science. Each year group progresses through a series of connected lessons each term that aim to develop core concepts and understandings.
Starting in 2019, our science program has also more comprehensively dealt with the Science areas of Science Inquiry Skills and Science as a Human Endeavour which focus on conducting scientific investigations and providing a human-centred and historical context in which science is studied.
Our whole-school science program has now been running for 7 years and the increase in general science knowledge and students’ interest in science has been a very positive development at our school.
