In Human Society and its Environment (HSIE), both History and Geography are mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10. In these Mandatory courses, students learn specific historical and geographical concepts and skills. In the Elective courses available in Years 9 and 10, students delve deeper into studying people, and the societies and environments in which they live.
A large number of individual subjects make up the key learning area of HSIE, in which students:
· Research, gather and analyse information
· Question and make judgements
· Write for a variety of purposes
