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.
Students entering into Year 11 have a choice of five Science ATAR courses at Broome Senior High School: Chemistry, Human Biology, Physics, Biology and Integrated Science; and GENERAL Integrated Science. In 2020 Broome Senior High School is also proposing GENERAL courses in Marine and Maritime Studies and Psychology (however the running of these courses will be subject to student numbers). 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).
For more information about Science courses, please see the Head of Learning Area – Science, Dr Brian Plewright.
