Creation reveals the beauty, complexity and order of God's handiwork, and helps us recognise our position as His creation. The scientific method is only possible because the universe is ordered. Science is an attempt to describe and explain that order. It is a subject that should give us greater appreciation of the natural world, as well as the Creator.
The scientific discipline is helpful in developing such characteristics as honesty, perseverance, creativity, clarity of thought, ability to solve problems and understanding and appreciation of the world around us. Our primary goal is to glorify God as He is experienced in Creation.
Year 7 to 10Science is a compulsory subject in Year 7 to 10. Students are engaged with all aspects of Science: process, critical thinking, the knowledge base and career opportunities. Additionally, in Years 8, 9 and 10, gifted students are further immersed and extended in the Advanced Academic Program.
Year 11 and 12Science courses are optional but highly recommended to students with University aspirations. Those choosing to study the Physical Sciences, Physics and Chemistry, often do so in preparation for careers in Engineering, Medicine, Mining, Physiotherapy, Architecture, Robotics and many others. Students opting for Human Biological or Biological Sciences often have an interest in working in Health Care (Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, Nursing, and Pathology) or with the Environment (Environmental Science, Ecology and Conservation Biology).
