Science is mandatory for all students from Year 7 to Year 10.

Science 7-10 provides a way of inquiring about the world around us. It explores evidence and investigates ways to discover, develop and produce solutions to real-world problems. Science emphasises the skills for working scientifically, as well as critical and creative thinking to address scientific issues.

In Years 11 and 12, students can choose from different science disciplines, including:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Earth and Environmental Science
  • Investigating Science
  • Physics.

In Year 12, students who are studying at least one other science subject may also choose to study Science Extension.

The new NSW Science curriculum will commence implementation at Lismore High Campus in 2019. Whilst the curriculum sets mandatory learning outcomes that have to be achieved, we are able to deliver a wide range of learning opportunities to our students. These learning opportunities connect students to their learning environment and are relevant, interesting and engaging. Our teaching laboratories are fully equipped with the latest equipment and each room is fitted with data-projectors and other technology.
