GHS SCIENCE FACULTY

In Science, students of all abilities are taught by dynanmic staff who make learning fun. The staff organise interactive classroom activities, excursions and experiences that are authentic and challenge our students to increase their understanding of the world we share. Science is a key part of understanding breaking news, interacting with our planet, choosing and using technology, and even making healthcare decisions. Without knowing it, Science at Gorokan High School prepares students for their adult  life, regardless of the career path they choose.

Mr Mesina - Head Teacher Science

 


 

Science is mandatory for all students from Year 7 to Year 10.

Science 7-10 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. Science emphasises the skills for working scientifically, as well as critical and creative thinking to address scientific issues.

In Years 11 and 12, students can choose from different science disciplines, including:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Earth and Environmental Science
  • Investigating Science
  • Physics.

In Year 12, students who are studying at least one other science subject may also choose to study Science Extension.
