The Sciences @ PNGHS

Understanding Science is essential to understanding the world in which we live. Learning in Science teaches us how to ask questions, test a hypothesis through observation and measurement, and provides us with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to make sense of what is happening around us.

Equipped with nine modern, well-resourced laboratories and a professional, well qualified staff, the Science programme aims to stimulate student interest through the use of hands-on experimental activities, field trips, international competitions, CREST, Science badges and Science Fair.
General Science is offered to all students at years 9, 10 and 11 from which students can then progress to study one or a combination of Biology, Chemistry and Physics at year 12 and year 13.

The Social Sciences provide an insight into the behaviours of people and societies, including our own. Understanding the world around us equips us with the knowledge to make wise decisions and be better citizens.

The Mathematics department ensures all students have a strong grounding in mathematical literacy. In the senior years students are encouraged to extend their complex understanding of statistics and alogorithms which they can later apply in many fields of learning.
