Science

The Science curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop an understanding of important scientific concepts and processes, the practices used to develop scientific knowledge.

Science is compulsory from years 7 to 9 and offered as an elective at year 10. We cover a range of different fields so students are well informed when they come to choose their VCE subjects.

Practical work and assignments are part of all science courses. Visits to KIOSC, Swinburne University, Gene Technology Access Centre (GTAC) and other destinations are also made to enhance student learning.
