Level 1 Geography
Teacher in Charge: Mr C. Redpath
Geography is the study of the earth as the home of people. It combines elements of the sciences with the humanities to help students to understand the world around them. Geographers do this by studying all the factors that make up the human and physical environment and how they affect each other. Geography enables students to develop the thinking, practical and social skills needed for making decisions. Sustainability is a key component and is interwoven throughout all the topics. This course includes a field trip to Kaikoura or Abel Tasman National Park.
