Learning Areas


Science is a dynamic, collaborative and creative human activity where students explore the unknown and conduct experiments to make sense of what they have heard and seen, be it in the classroom or beyond.

At the College, we aim to foster curiosity and nurture a love of learning. Concepts are taught in relation to real world contexts and girls are repeatedly given opportunities to hypothesise, to plan investigations, gather data and draw relevant conclusions. Students are encouraged to critically assess claims made in the media concerning contemporary issues such as the use of finite resources and renewable energy, genetic engineering and global warming, to become independent thinkers who will have a voice in society beyond their school years.
