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.

The syllabus consists of the following strands:

  • Natural science
  • Design and construction
  • Technology
  • Computer education


The school continually strives to use effective technology for quality teaching and learning and purchases new equipment each year according to the school developed technology plan

All classrooms have wi-fi access and a variety of computers and/or laptops which are connected  to the school computer network providing access to the school intranet and, under teacher supervision, the internet for teaching and learning activities.
