Science and technology

Science and technology is mandatory for all students from Kindergarten to Year 6.

In science and technology, students explore the natural and made worlds. They learn how to apply scientific and technological skills, knowledge and understanding across a broad range of contexts.

Science provides a way of inquiring about the world around us. It explores evidence and investigates ways to discover, develop and produce solutions to real world problems. The inquiry and skill-based nature of science opens doors to ideas and discoveries.


Students in the senior class use digital equipment as well as black and white darkroom facilities to learn about photography. Students have produced photograms, pinhole camera images, black & white prints, sepia toning and even alternative processes such as Cyanotype in our very own darkroom.


Students in the senior class enjoy learning the finer points of computer programming through the use of the newly purchased Robotics equipment.
