Science at CGHS

Science in years 7 to 10 consists of four strands that include the following:

  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology
  • Earth Science.

The science faculty have designed programs that promote inquiry based learning and are differentiated to suit a diverse range of students. They encouraged to work both individual and in groups to research, design, plan and carryout investigations.

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.

  • 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.
