Fostering a life long interest in Science & Agriculture


Our Science faculty provide a diverse range of subjects with many exciting learning opportunities, both inside and outside the classroom, with the vision of extending student knowledge and fostering a life-long interest in Science.

Students can study Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Agriculture and Primary Industries at Corowa High School and do so with fantastic facilities and a number of insightful excursions and incursions. Students visit the Murray River, the CSU Wagga Chemistry Department and Senior students can attend HSC study days to help prepare them for examinations.

Students have access to exceptional laboratory equipment and various chemicals which are used during practical lessons to enrich our Science program. We are only of only a few school to have DNA extraction and gel electrophoresis equipment on site, meaning that we do not have to visit university laboratories to access this technology.

As in all subjects, students can access Google Classroom to continue their learning outside the classroom and find useful information relative to each learning unit.


Corowa High School is located on extensive grounds, making it the ideal location for an authentic and hands-on Agriculture program. With a well-established vineyard, spacious farming area, numerous livestock and experienced staff, our Agriculture program provides opportunities for students to study viticulture, animal husbandry and farming practices. 

As one of the only schools in NSW with a vineyard on-site, our students have the unique opportunity of studying Viticulture as they participate in each step of making our annual wine vintage.

Science is mandatory for all students from Year 7 to Year 10.

Science 7-10 provides a way of inquiring about the world around us. It explores evidence and investigates ways to discover, develop and produce solutions to real-world problems. Science emphasises the skills for working scientifically, as well as critical and creative thinking to address scientific issues.

In Years 11 and 12, students can choose from different science disciplines, including:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Earth and Environmental Science
  • Investigating Science
  • Physics.

In Year 12, students who are studying at least one other science subject may also choose to study Science Extension.
