Engaging Students

Our teaching practice aims to engage the students in meaningful learning. Our success is measured by our ongoing successes in the Higher School certificate.


Developing Student Skills

The science courses offered at South Sydney High School allow students to experience a wide range of activities, and to develop those technologies and skills associated with research and scientific method.


We encourage all students to reflect, understand and relate to the links between science and the physical world and to appreciate the fragile environment.



These are often organised throughout the year, including trips to Taronga Zoo, the Observatory, Science in the City, the Australian Museum, the Botanical Gardens, the IMAX Theatre, the Aquarium, Randwick Children's Hospital, ANSTO and Luna Park.
