Science & Technology

A learning area in which children develop an enriched view of themselves, society, the environment and the future

Science and Technology are of increasing importance and integral to our rapidly changing world. A student's sense of wonder and curiosity about the natural and man-made world is fostered through actively engaging in the processes of working scientifically and working technologically. Students become self-motivated learners through active participation in challenging and engaging experiences in order to develop innovative solutions.

The K to 6 program caters for the needs of our multicultural population at St Joseph’s and encourages and guides those with specific learning needs and interests. Many activities lend themselves to integration across other Key Learning Areas and make it a more meaningful experience for students.
