Science forms the basis of the world around us. The rapid changes in our world are mainly due to the progress of science. Science is a global human endeavour that encompasses a body of knowledge and a process of discovery.Through studying science, students gain the knowledge and skills in finding answers to how things work. They have the advantage in adapting to the changes around us. Students become better informed citizens and develop the confidence in applying their knowledge to make this world a better place for the future generations to come.

At Killester, Science is a compulsory subject for all students from Year 7 to 10. Beyond Year 10, the College offers options in VCE sciences: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Psychology and VET Certificate III Laboratory Skills to accommodate students’ interests in science.
