Science is a dynamic, collaborative and creative human endeavour arising from our desire to make sense of our world through exploring the unknown, investigating universal mysteries, making predictions and solving problems. Science aims to understand a large number of observations in terms of a much smaller number of broad principles. Science knowledge is contestable and is revised, refined and extended as new evidence arises.
The Science curriculum area strives to provide students with a dynamic learning environment which fosters the pursuit of knowledge in Science whilst also encouraging the students to develop the values of respect and responsibility in applying their understanding.
