Course Description

Teacher in Charge: G. Aitken

Geography is a social science and teaches students how to look at issues and problems using different viewpoints or perceptions.  It develops an understanding of the world as our home and teaches understanding of global issues and concerns.  Geographic skills are an important part of the programme which includes mapping, graphing, visual and field work skills.  All three external Achievement Standards are offered and this body of knowledge is often the basis for the internal assessments.  To be successful at all levels students need to be well organised, with an ability to think locally, nationally and globally and be able to apply the knowledge they have learned in a range of contexts.


This course can lead to:  Level 2 & Level 3 Geography, employment in farming, University.
