SCIENCE

Curriculum Purpose

Preparing students for careers and furthering social justice

Our curriculum and lessons will give students the opportunity to choose from a wide range of STEAM careers.  To do this, our students will achieve a P8 score of +1.  A thorough academic science education will also give the powerful knowledge to allow students to interact academically with peers, within science and other professional roles.

Knowledge acquisition as a measure of progress

Our curriculum and lessons will give students the knowledge (core, procedural and hinterland) to critically synthesise and analyse matters that involve science.

The needs of our community 

Our curriculum and lessons will reflect positively the community of students within our school and actively question inequalities in science.

Teaching science for its intrinsic value

We believe that the world is an amazing place. Science helps us understand just how amazing it is.  Our curriculum and lessons will give students the knowledge that will amaze, solve problems and develop a healthy scepticism.
