The school provides a specialist science teacher who takes all classes Years 1-6 for a session during the week in the science rooms. The lessons are based on the PrimaryConnections programme. Primary Connections Links science with literacy’ and is an innovative approach to teaching and learning science.
A partnership between the AustralianAcademy of Science (the Academy) and the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR), Primary Connections focuses on developing students’ knowledge, skills, understanding and capacities in both science and literacy.
The students had a very entertaining time at Science Alive in the first week back this term. There were many activities using simple, everyday items, demonstrating the laws of science. The children all participated very enthusiastically.
