They create an outcome, evaluate the research processes used and reflect on the relevance of the chosen capability (or capabilities) to themselves and their research project.

SCIENTIFIC STUDIES/HEALTH SCIENCE
Students develop their knowledge of scientific principles and concepts, the ability to use that knowledge to identify questions, issues, opportunities, and challenges, and the capacity to acquire new knowledge through their own investigations. There are opportunities to learn from professionals working in the Health Science field.

TUESDAY 4.00 - 7.00 PM

ANCIENT STUDIES
Students learn about the history, literature, society, and culture of ancient civilisations, which may include those of Asia-Australia, the Americas, Europe, and Western Asia/North Africa, and the classical civilisations of Greece and Rome.

THURSDAY 4.00 - 7.00 PM

CHEMISTRY
Students develop an understanding of the physical world that enables them to be questioning, reflective, and critical thinkers. Students can use chemistry to explore and explain their experiences of phenomena around them. Chemistry is organised so that each intended learning outcome is related to a key idea or concept. Within the study of the chemical ideas and concepts, students develop their chemistry investigation skills through practical investigations and critical analysis of chemistry issues.

CHILD STUDIES
Students learn about children's growth and development from conception to 8 years and critically examine attitudes and values about parenting and care-giving and gain an understanding of the growth and development of children.

GEOGRAPHY
Students develop an understanding of the spatial interrelationships between people, places, and environments.

An Integrated Learning version of this subject is also available within the same class.

MEDIA STUDIES
