BiologyBiology aims to develop an understanding of the interactions within and between organisms and between organisms and their environment including levels of organisation of life and evolution as a common source of unity and diversity.The study of biology recognises that, while humans are part of nature, they continue to have a greater influence on the environment than any other species.

Biology Practical experiences have been designed to utilise and further develop students’ expertise in each of the following skill areas:

• planning investigations

• conducting investigations

• communicating information and understanding

• developing scientific thinking and problem-solving techniques

• working individually and in teams

ChemistryChemistry is a branch of Science that touches our lives every moment. The foods we eat, the medicines we need, how the human body works, alternative energy sources, the destruction of the ozone layer, and developing new materials are all areas in which chemists are working and are seeking answers.

Senior Science

Senior Science 

The Senior Science Course has as its emphasis science in our world. As such it does not have the same level of mathematical or scientific difficulty as other two unit Science courses. The course tries to develop through science, basic skills in living, an understanding of our relationship with the environment and an interest in science and technology that may lead to enhanced use of leisure time. Note: Students who complete the Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Environmental Studies or Physics Preliminary course but do not wish to continue on to the HSC in that course, can elect to undertake the Senior Science HSC course.

Earth & Environmental Science

People increasingly are realising that we have only one earth, that we are dependent on this earth and what we do has an impact on the Earth, and that therefore we need to better understand the delicate balance that exists, and how that balance can be maintained.
