Welcome to the Science and Technology posts.

The Year 7 students have begun working through the Physics component of the Year 7 Science curriculum. A section of the course requires them to learn about forces, more specifically, types of forces and investigating the effect applying different forces has on familiar objects. With a warmer change in weather, the students and teacher decided to investigate the concept of balan ...

Our Year 8 students have been working hard to prepare their lessons in anticipation of the Year 4s Peer Tutoring session. During this session, Year 4 students visit the High School science labs and are taught by our Year 8s.

Early in Term 4 the finalists in the Year 5 and 6 intra-school Paper Plane Competition, participated against other independent primary schools in the STEM Paper Plane Challenge. Our students competed effectively and recorded many competitive flight times, alongside their great distances flown. This inaugural IPSHA event was enjoyed by all. We thank Mrs Higginbottom, Mr Butler a ...

Last Friday the Year 5 students came up to the High School Science Labs for the annual Peer Tutoring task. The Year 9 students spent a week preparing a lesson that will compliment and extend on the Year 5 Science Curriculum. The task outline is to produce an exciting, entertaining, interesting 10-minute lesson to teach the Year 5 students a concept related to what both year gr ...
