The leaders and teachers in this Townsville school describe the motivational force of exposing students to authentic scientific investigations, both within the classroom and through partnerships with the local scientific community. They also discuss the importance of students developing essential science skills through broad exposure to experiments, data collection, analysis and reporting. They confirm the emphasis placed on scientific literacy and the contexts – both local and beyond – in which students share their discoveries.
Ryan Catholic College was established in 1979 to serve the rapidly developing areas on the outskirts of Townsville and the corridor development of the Upper Ross area. The College was planned as a co-educational institution from its inception for children from Preschool to Year 12. The curriculum in Years 5 to 9 has been designed to expose students to a diverse range of disciplines that will enable them to explore where their talents and interests lie.
