​​​​​​​​​​​Rationale

The Excellence in Science Program is designed to inspire and provide greater opportunities for high achieving students in Years 7 - 9. This three-year program allows students to be grouped together in one class where they are nurtured and motivated to excel in their studies.



Entrance to the Program

Entry requirements for the Excellence in Science Program include an Application Form​ (with supporting documentation); and, current achievement in effort, academics and behaviour at their current schools.


Expert Staff

Teachers of this program will be senior Science staff from specialist science areas.


Overview

Students in this program will study the Australian Curriculum for Science, and will experience learning above and beyond this curriculum framework. It is expected that students cover core content for each term; however, this class will do so at a faster pace, leaving time for development of deeper understanding of concepts, exploration of other topics and enrichment activities e.g. QUT programs.


Maintenance of Position in Program

It is expected that students who enter the program will maintain high academic achievement, and display suitable behaviour and effort at all times. They will also be required to provide identified resources. The school reserves the right to withdraw students from the program at any time.


Pathways

Students who graduate from the program at the end of Year 9 may also be eligible to study Year 10 Science Extension.
