Year 7

The stage 4 and 5 Science syllabus is broken into four distinct fields of study: Living World (Biology), Chemical World (Chemistry), Earth and Space Science and the Physical World (Physics). Students will be introduced to each of these fields over junior years in the hope that they will go on to study one or more of them at the HSC level.

Topics studied in year 7 include: Introduction to Science, Nature of Matter, Cells, The Earth, Sun and Moon, Mixtures, The Earth's Resources, Classification and Forces.
Specifically, students will be provided with a learning experience in which they: 
  • acquire scientific knowledge and skills and develop understanding about phenomena within and beyond their experience
  • develop an appreciation of science as a human activity and apply their understanding to their everyday life.
