Science education is essential to the growth and development of all students because it encourages observation, investigation, inquiry, and data collection with analysis. Having science knowledge supports key skills in other areas, even if a career is not in science.

 

All students study a general science course in Year 9, 10 and 11. Additional to that, they may choose a further four hours of science in Year 11 Science double - 11SCD:

 

On completion of Year 11 Science, students will then be able to choose Year 12 Science, Biology, Chemistry and/or Physics (or two or all of them).

 

Students in innovation stream Year 9, 10 and 11, will have a blended science course covering all skills as much as regular 9SCI, 10SCI and 11SCI.

 

Students in Sport in Education (SIE) stream have a science course more aligned with 9SCI, 10SCI and 11SCI, however with a more sports focus and context.
