Science

Hamilton Girls’ High School offers a range of Science subjects including Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

Science is the study of how the universe works and what it is made of. There is a huge amount of scientific knowledge and to make it easier to study, the Junior Science programme is broken up into smaller specialist subject areas – The Living World, The Physical Word, The Material World and Planet Earth and Beyond. In this Junior Science programme the students use both practical and theory based activities to test their ideas and improve their understanding of today’s scientific issues.

This Junior Science programme leads to NCEA level 1 Science and NCEA L2 and L3 Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

We have eight well equipped laboratories, fifteen science teachers and two science technicians.

Science opens up career opportunities such as forensics, laser technologies, bioengineering, food science, environmental management, medicine, pharmacology, engineering and architecture.
