A study of science is mandatory for all students from Kindergarten to Year 10.

Science is a dynamic, collaborative, and creative human endeavour arising from our desire to make sense of our world. Through science, we explore the unknown, investigate universal phenomena, make predictions and solve problems.

Science is mandatory for years 7 – 10. At Queanbeyan High School we offer a range of science elective subjects, including:

  • Agriculture 
  • Marine & Aquatic Studies
  • Extension Science.

Using the NESA science syllabus aligned with the Australian Curriculum, students at Queanbeyan High develop their scientific literacy that enables them to engage meaningfully with contemporary issues, evaluate different points of view, and make informed decisions.

In our classes, science students are encouraged to use critical and creative thinking skills, and to challenge themselves to ask questions, and draw evidence-based conclusions using scientific knowledge and practices.
