The teaching of Science is a high priority at Macquarie Primary. As well as through the regular class program, students have opportunities to participate in Science through the Univeristy of Canberra Science Clinics in Term 3. The school has close links with the CSIRO and the Science faculty at ANU through parent and local community.
All Years 3 - 6 students participate in the ACT Public Speaking Competition organised by Rostrum each year. Each class selects two finalists who compete in the school final. One student is then selected to represent the school.
