This mandatory course requires students to complete 100 hours of Geography in Stage 5. Satisfactory completion of this course will be recorded, with a grade, on the Record of School Achievement (RoSA).

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.
