Iona Presentation College


Science is the study of phenomena and events around us, through organised observation and experimentation.

Science education aims to foster students' curiosity about the physical and biological world around them, whilst exploring the 'how' and 'why' of these phenomena. Development of scientific knowledge is achieved through the combination of Science Inquiry, Science Understandings and Science as a Human Endeavour, which all underpin the Australian Science Curriculum.

At Iona, we are focused on ensuring that each student develops a strong foundation and passion for Science, motivating them to become lifelong learners in this discipline. As we move through the 21st century, these skills and understandings will enable our students to be able to appropriately comment on and make a difference in the world in which they live.

By incorporating a variety of inquiry and investigative activities, students learn to plan, measure, observe, analyse data, design and evaluate procedures, and examine evidence. Through learning and discovering Science, our students have the tools to lead fulfilling and responsible lives, encouraging them to learn independently, deal with new situations, reason critically, think creatively, make informed decisions and solve problems.

At Iona Presentation College, we offer Biology, Chemistry, Human Biology, Physics and Psychology at an ATAR level.
