OUR CURRICULUM

Geography

 

Geography instils in students a curiosity about the world around them. It teaches a range of skills to allow students to explore and develop a better understanding of the Earth; its people, environments and societies.  It challenges students to understand the relationships between people and the environment, embracing the complexities of understanding when tackling real world issues.
