We are constantly exposed to geographical issues in everyday life, including: environmental concerns; natural disasters; world weather; local developments; urban and rural change; population movements; maps and travel.
It is not surprising then that Geography is a very popular course in upper school. Geography will provide students with an opportunity to develop their awareness and understanding of the patterns, processes and relationships that characterise human and physical environments and the interactions between them.
Geography helps the student to develop their awareness and understanding of the world in which they live.
Geography allows students to:
- Broaden their global outlook, promoting good citizenship;
- Develop a cultural and environmental awareness;
- Develop a knowledge and understanding of people and places;
