Humanities & Social Science (HASS)


The study of History promotes the understanding of societies and events that have shaped the world. The curriculum generally takes a world history approach within which the history of Australia is taught. It does this in order to equip students for the world (local, regional and global) in which they live. 


The study of Geography develops students’ curiosity and wonder about the diversity of the world’s places and their people, cultures and environments. Students examine why places have their particular environmental and human characteristics, explore the similarities and differences between them, investigate their significance and meanings to people, explain how they change over time, and evaluate their futures.
