Science Education

At Canadian Lead PS we believe that effective science teaching relies on understanding students’ pre-existing ideas about science concepts and supporting students to develop more scientific understandings.

We use Primary Connections to assist us in delivering high quality science education. This is an innovative program developed by the Australian Academy of Science linking the teaching of science with the teaching of literacy in primary schools.


Primary Connections focuses on developing students’ knowledge, understanding and skills in both science and literacy, through an inquiry-based approach. PrimaryConnections provides exemplary curriculum resources and a comprehensive and practical professional learning program.

Sustainability Education

At Canadian Lead Primary we approach sustainability by looking at energy usage, waste, water consumption and biodiversity. We are a Resource Smart school which means we are continually looking to improve our practices to reduce the carbon foot print that we leave on the earth.

RSAV people logoOur students learn about these things not only in the classroom but in practical settings such as in our Green Patch. By helping in the Green Patch the students learn about gardening (both vegetables and native plants) and recycling in the garden. Our lovely chooks help teach the students about recycling food scraps too!
