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.

In science lessons, students will develop science skills, knowledge and understanding through learning experiences set in contexts that are relevant to students’ learning needs and interests. Students will explore scientific concepts; develop skills in and understanding of the processes of working scientifically.


Practical experiences enhance key understanding about the nature, development, use and influence of science and scientific concepts, ideas and principles related to the physical world, earth and space, the living world and the chemical world. Science teachers at Bomaderry High School place an emphasis on using science inquiry to develop science knowledge and understanding through the process of questioning and predicting. Students use technologies in applying the processes of working scientifically.
