The aim of Science is to inspire and enthuse our students, to develop inquisitive minds that question the world around them, come up with new ideas and discover new evidence that shapes our understanding of the world in which we live. 

Science (from the Latin word scientia, meaning "knowledge") is a systematic enterprise that builds and organises knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe. The science curriculum has been designed to provide students with a deep understanding of the scientific knowledge and ideas that impact them as individuals. As they move through the curriculum, students will be increasingly supported in developing their curiosity, provided with insight into working scientifically and develop an appreciation of the value of science in their everyday lives.
