Science requires curiosity, imagination and inspiration. In science we learn to investigate, understand and explain our world and the wider universe. We do this through the generation and testing of ideas and gathering of evidence in various ways. A good foundation in science enables problem solving and decision making in many areas of life.
Students need a basic understanding of science for many different career paths and also to cope with the challenges of technology in the world.
In the junior school we study the nature of science in the context of the living world, the material world, the physical world and planet Earth and beyond. In the senior school it is possible for students to specialise in one or more of the science disciplines.
