At St. Joseph’s we want our children to develop enquiring minds. We offer opportunities to develop knowledge and understanding of important scientific areas, processes and skills and to relate these to everyday experiences. The children develop thinking skills by observing, exploring, discovering, questioning and investigating the natural and manmade world.
