Science is a way of investigating, understanding, and explaining our natural, physical world and the wider universe. At Rutherford our team of highly qualified, enthusiastic staff instil interest and passion in the subject by encouraging inquiry and critical thinking skills through practical and hands-on activities.
From Year 9 to Year 11 students follow a General Science programme which gives them a broad base of knowledge across the different learning areas within Science. This leads to specialised courses at Year 12 and 13 in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
Weekly tutorial sessions are run in the Info Commons on Wednesday after school to offer additional help and extension to any student that wishes extra one-on-one support.
