Teaching & Learning

Science and Technology

Teaching and learning of Science and Technology at St Thomas School is based on theĀ NSW Board of Studies Science and Technology Syllabus. This syllabus is organised into three strands:

  • Investigation
  • Designing and Making Technology
  • Using Technology

At St Thomas School, students learn to investigate, understand and communicate about the physical, biological and technological world and value the processes that support life on our planet. Science helps students to become critical thinkers by encouraging them to use evidence to evaluate the use of science in society and the application of science in daily life. The staff have embraced the new BOSTES Science and Technology K-6 Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum.
