Humanities

By the end of Level 6, students will have developed a very good understanding of important concepts relating to local and global environments, Australian society and their place as citizens in our democratic society.

Each unit of work is related to a broad ‘Essential Question’, which allows students’ learning to be focused yet flexible. Our Term 1 whole-school essential question was "What makes Australia a great place?" All levels investigated different topics under this all-encompassing banner, which allowed students to see links between each other’s studies.

As well as completing investigations, projects, homework tasks, Literacy and Numeracy-based activities related to their area of study, each year level also participates in various excursions and incursions relating to their Humanities topics. These provide exciting, real-life ways to engage students and stimulate their thinking and learning.
