Learning & Teaching

Human Society and Its Environment (HSIE)

This Key Learning Area area is made up of two subjects – History and Geography

History

Students develop a critical understanding of the past and its impact on the present.  This enables students to participate as active, informed responsible citizens.

The students develop skills in active investigation and a spirit of enquiry which leads them to understand the nature of evidence and sources of which authenticity and values can be evaluated. 

Geography

Geography is the study of places and the relationships between people and their environments. It is a rich and complex discipline that integrates knowledge from natural sciences, social sciences and humanities to build a holistic understanding of the world.

Students learn to question why the world is the way it is, reflect on their relationships with and responsibilities for the world and propose actions designed to shape a socially just and sustainable future.
