There are courses at Year 11, 12 & 13. Geography may be taken every year or picked up as a new option at any year level.
Geography is the study of the environment as the home of people. It seeks to interpret the world and how it changes over time – past, present and future.
It explores the relationships and connections between people and both natural and cultural environments.
Geography investigates the ways in which features are arranged on the earth’s surface. It describes and explains the patterns and processes that create them.
Students learn to think spatially and use maps, visual images and new technologies, including geographical information systems (GIS), to obtain, present and analyse information.
