Welcome to the Science Department

Science has played an increasingly important role in the lives of all Canadians, underpinning much of what we take for granted, from life-saving pharmaceuticals to clean water, the places in which we live and work, and communication via information technologies.




A scientifically and technologically literate person is one who can read and understand common media reports about science and technology, critically evaluate the information presented and confidently engage in discussions and decision-making activities regarding issues that involve science and technology.

The science curriculum, including biology, chemistry, earth and space science, environmental science and physics provides students with the opportunity to achieve excellence and a high degree of scientific literacy while maintaining a sense of wonder about the world around them.
