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 provides a way of answering interesting and important questions about the biological, physical and technological world.
The Australian Science Curriculum forms the basis of our teaching and learning programs across the following areas:
- Biological Sciences
- Chemical Sciences
- Earth and Space Sciences
- Physical Sciences
HASS: Humanities and Social Sciences
Students of Humanities in Year 7-10 are engaged in inquiry learning and supported to bring to their study the skills of critical thinking and making connections. Under this approach, students are encouraged to gain understandings about matters studied, to apply their understandings and skills in their own lives and to actively explore, make sense of and contribute to improving the world around them.
At Star of Sea Catholic College we follow the Australian HASS Curriculum, which is comprised of History and Geography.
