Year 7-10 students study the West Australian Curriculum. During the first year in high school, your child will be exposed to a variety of learning opportunities. The Science curriculum is made up of three strands: Science Understanding, Science Inquiry Skills and Science as a Human Endeavour. These three strands are interrelated and their content is taught in an integrated way through Biology, Chemistry, Earth & Space and Physics.
Students entering Year 11 have a choice of Australian Tertiary Academic Rank (ATAR) courses in Biology, Human Biology, Physics and Chemistry: and GENERAL Marine and Maritime Studies and Psychology. Students should carefully select courses based on their ability in Science, their preferred career or educational pathway and prerequisite requirements for the course of their choice at University and Registered Training Organisations (RTOs).
