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.

“Without geography you’re nowhere.”
