Impending change can provide us with the opportunity to rethink and renew the things that we do. The first phase of the Australian Curriculum implementation offers primary school teachers the chance to examine their approaches to science learning and teaching. This paper focuses on the perceptions of three primary school teachers regarding what support is required to foster science teaching in primary classrooms. In acknowledging these voices, implications for science teaching practice and leadership are proposed and positive actions to encourage change are identified.
