Knowledge and understanding of science, scientific literacy and scientific methods are necessary for learners to develop the skills to resolve questions about their natural and constructed world.

The purpose of science education is to develop scientific literacy, helping learners: to be interested in, and understand, the world around them; to engage in discourse about science; to understand the testable and contestable nature of science, and question the claims made by others about scientific matters; to be able to identify questions and draw evidence-based conclusions; and to make informed decisions about the environment, about their own health and well-being, and about the role and impact of science on society.

Life Sciences is the study of the fascinating diversity of life: as it has evolved, as it functions and how it interacts with the environment. It focuses on investigations of living systems at the subcellular, cellular and organism level. This knowledge enables us to explore and explain everyday observations, find solutions to biological issues, and understand the processes of biological continuity and change over time.
