Science and Technology
Our students are engaged in challenging learning activities which develop their knowledge of a range of scientific and technological concepts. This Key Learning Area covers the strands of Physical Phenomena, Information Communication, Products and Services, Built Environments and Living Things.
Purposeful hands on experiences allow them to investigate, design, problem solve and communicate their findings, conclusions and judgements.
We are proud of our outstanding environmental sustainability education initiatives at Arcadia Public School. Through energy conservation, waste reduction and gardening programs, our students adopt behaviours and practices which protect the environment while acquiring attitudes of care and concern for the environment.
A wide range of scientific equipment, computer software and Internet resources support our students in their studies. Classrooms are well equipped with computer technology enhancing our students learning programs. Interactive White Boards in every classroom increase the development of skills in all Key Learning Areas.
Computer Technology is integrated across all subjects with our students confidently applying their skills to a meaningful range of tasks.
