The Science faculty are committed to providing the students of Bossley Park High School with quality teaching and learning experiences that cater towards 21st century learners. Teachers are frequently engaged in professional development workshops to further our skills.
We focus on providing practical experiences for our Science students so that they can apply their scientific knowledge to real life situations. This allows them to develop an understanding of the world around them and become scientifically literate citizens.
