Science at AVSS is highly valued by students and staff alike. All of our students love participating in engaging science experiments and hands on learning. It is a subject area that brings education alive and that students can easily relate to.
All students from Foundation to Year 10 have at least 1 hour a week of scheduled science time. In addition, we also have a specialist science teacher employed 1 day a week to explicitly teach our primary school students. Science is also embedded throughout the week via our garden classes and Authentic Literacy & Digitech programs.
We are currently in the process of setting up a dedicated science lab to even further enhance our students’ engagement in this program. This is an exciting project which will hopefully be completed by the end of this year.
