Kia ora - welcome to the Hurunui College Science Department!
Hurunui College is a versatile environment and we adapt our science curriculum to meet the needs of our students. Our science learning is based on the Five Science Capabilities: Gather and Interpret Data, Use Evidence, Critique Evidence, Interpret Representations, and Engage with Science. We also have a strong context focus around technology and the environment.
Depending on student demand, our department can offer the following subjects at NCEA: Science, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Agriculture, Environmental Science, and Earth and Space Science. In the event that we don't have sufficient student numbers to offer a subject, individual students can study a subject through the video conference network. In this instance Mr Kelly organises the practical components for the students.
Our science labs were built in 2012 and are modern and well equipped.
