Science

Science is an exciting, ever changing subject. Each time we switch on the TV or radio, we hear about a new discovery or invention.

At John Therry, students learn science through experiments, field studies, research and thorough teaching. Students are encouraged to have hands-on experiences using our vast range of equipment. Our innovative staff lead the students through well designed lessons to equip them as responsible citizens in an ever-changing world. Our curriculum includes digital citizenship, catholic values, Aboriginal perspectives and sustainability, as well as many other important aspects of learning science.
