Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Ocean Science, and Physics are all available as taught classes in the senior school.
Science is a way of investigating, understanding, and explaining our natural, physical world and the wider universe. It involves generating and testing ideas, gathering evidence—including making observations, carrying out investigations and modelling, and communicating and debating with others—in order to develop scientific knowledge, understanding, and explanations.
Science is able to inform problem solving and decision making in many areas of life. Many of the major challenges and opportunities that confront our world need to be approached from a scientific perspective, taking into account social and ethical considerations.
Life is not easy for any of us.
But what of that?
We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves.
We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.
– Marie Curie (first scientist to be awarded a Nobel Prize in two different categories)
