Science in Practice
Our science program provides students with a range of learning experiences including practical activities and the use of information and communication technologies (ICT’s). Our facilities, including our innovative Eco Centre with functioning aquaponics system and scientific laboratories, provide a space for students to explore their curiosity for science. Students also have the opportunity to enhance their learning through experiences such as excursions, student experiments and field studies. Additionally, our proximity to Moreton Bay means that our Marine and Aquatic Practices’ students have the opportunity to visit and study this unique marine ecosystem and its’ inhabitants regularly. These opportunities help foster passion and success in these subjects and equip students with a variety of skills which will benefit students beyond school, in both science related careers and non-science industries.
In studying science at Clontarf Beach State High School, students are able to develop necessary scientific knowledge and skills to make informed decisions and contribute to key challenges the world faces both now and in the future.
