Science Badge

Your child has expressed an interest in studying for a science badge. This involves them independently studying a topic of their choice. When they have completed 20 stars, they will receive a certificate and a metal badge.

Working towards a science badge will give your child the opportunity to pursue an area of science that interests them, as well as develop skills in time management and independent study.

The cost of studying for a science badge is $6.00. Once payment and permission is completed your child’s activity card will be given to them by their science teacher, and they may begin completing their independent study towards achieving their badge. The science badges are available all year round.

  • Show courtesy and consideration to others.
  • Follow the rules and instructions of staff and other supervisors at the events.
  • Look after myself and my personal belongings.
  • Declare medical conditions that could affect participation in the events.
  • Accept the rules set by the school for the events.
