Acceptance at the discretion of HOF Science, HOD Careers, & Dean.
All Year 11 students are required to study science and if they do not choose the optional Extension Science course, they will be placed into one of the following Level 1 courses: Practical Science, Applied Science or Science, depending on their Year 10 grades.
The Practical Science course is able to focus on those Level 1 standards that gain credits through practical and hands-on investigations across a variety of science fields. Topics will be selected based on the interest and ability of the students in the class and may include chemical reactions, heat transfer related to hangi or home insulation, horticulture, and microbiology and disinfectants. This makes the course suitable for students who are not planning on taking Level 2 Science courses.
