Health and Physical Education
The Western Australian Curriculum: Science provides opportunities for students to develop an understanding of important science concepts and processes, the practices used to develop scientific knowledge, of science’s contribution to our culture and society, and its applications in our lives. The curriculum supports students to develop the scientific knowledge, understandings and skills to make informed decisions about local, national and global issues and to participate, if they so wish, in science-related careers.
Students will continue to develop their ability to solve problems and make informed, evidence-based decisions on investigations and through the three science strands of Science Inquiry Skills, Science Understandings and Science as a Human Endeavour.
