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.

What is Science?

Science at Winmalee High School enables students to develop skills to observe, infer, predict, measure, classify, analyse and to think scientifically which helps them to apply their knowledge critically to life's challenges. These are essential skills for all students so that they may become future innovative and industrious citizens, parents, and leaders in this rapidly changing world. Science education matters!
