At Sacred Heart we believe that science is an inquisitive and exciting subject that is present in the world around us. We endeavour to teach our children a rich and progressive curriculum. We believe that science teaches us how to make sense of the world around us and develop a deeper understanding of the way it works. By developing a child's ability to investigate, reason and work in a scientific manner they can better understand and appreciate scientific processes. In our school we want to help children to understand and appreciate that science is part of their everyday lives in and out of school. We encourage the children to develop these key and fundamental skills through their growing knowledge and understanding of the world. We want children to learn and appreciate the contributions made by many scientists to the development of our ever growing society.
