Humanities (History and Geography)

This subject develops the students’ knowledge and understanding of communities, both local and global. They learn about the interactions of people within the environment and the impact of human endeavour on natural systems. Beginning with their own rules for the classroom, the students are encouraged to develop skills and values which will enable them to participate as active and informed citizens in a democratic society. There is a particular emphasis on students understanding that they are part of a planet and that they are also part of history. These two aspects are studied on communal, national and global levels.
