Level 1 Science
Teacher in Charge: Ms J. Sharp
• To assist students to make good life choices in socio-scientific contexts through increased scientific skills and knowledge relevant to their everyday world.
• To enable students to achieve at the highest possible level in NCEA Science Level 1.
• To lay a sound foundation in Biology, Chemistry and Physics so that students may continue on to Level 2 in these learning areas.
A set of 3 workbooks are provided by the department for use as texts. However, if a student wishes to write in her workbook, she can purchase them at a cost of $25.
It is of benefit to students to bring a laptop to lessons although they will not be disadvantaged academically if they do not. They may need to access a Chromebook from school instead.
