Each student at Bolinda PS has weekly science classes. These classes are hands-on, interactive lessons where students learn through investigation.
Throughout the year, students will cover all aspects of the Science curriculum, including biological, chemical, physical, and Earth and space sciences.
They will also learn about science as a human endeavour.
The students will have the opportunity to imagine, create and display their own scientific knowledge throughout the year, continually asking the basic questions of WHY? and HOW?
